Submission Guidelines

Our Autumn 2005 submissions cycle was a huge success, and we received over 80 submissions from 34 different writers and artists from around the globe! As we continue to expand, we hope to build on this success for our Winter 2005 issue and beyond. But we need your help!

If you are a writer or artist (or if you know any writers or artists), please submit your work to Antithesis Common. Everyone will receive personal feedback on their pieces, regardless of whether or not we decide to publish their work(s). If nothing else, this presents a great opportunity to get constructive feedback, as well as publishing experience and exposure!

Antithesis Common is not a genre-specific literary magazine, and our submission system is open to all forms of writing and artwork. Please follow the guidelines within each type of work; if you wish to submit something that is outside the scope of this list, please contact us.

Submissions should be emailed here.

At this time, we do not pay for submissions to the magazine, however, we hope to do so in the future. If your piece is chosen as our feature work, we will publish a full-page biography within the magazine. Please be prepared to provide additional information about yourself, including your interests, other works, etc.
