Submission Guidelines

Our Winter 2005 submissions cycle was a huge success, and we received over 100 submissions from 33 different writers and artists from around the globe. As we continue to expand, we hope to build on this success for our Spring 2006 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.

General Guidelines

*Simultaneous submissions are acceptable with prior notification.
*Please provide your full name (as you would like it to appear in the magazine) at the time of submission. Pen names are acceptable, but screen names, User IDs, and first names only are not.

*Antithesis Common embraces diversity, and generally we welcome all subjects, opinions, and ideas. However, hateful or inflammatory submissions will not be published.

*Please keep in mind that we are a magazine for creative writing and art; thus, traditional "articles" about a subject (i.e. fact-based retellings of an event) are not encouraged.
