Hump Day Submission Carousel 5

#5: 2/24/21

It's Wednesday, so you know what that means! HUMP DAY SUBMISSIONS! Because it's easy to fall off the submission train during the week I'm presenting you with 3 cool and very different small journals currently open for submissions to save you research time! Pick one of the three journals presented and read some of the pieces in your genre. If you're not digging them, check the next journal. Don't agonize over it, if you're not enjoying the writing or you don't feel your writing would fit in there move along to the next journal. If none of them seem to fit... maybe next week? 

Journal 1Night Music Journal. This online journal publishes issues twice a year and reads no fee submissions in poetry, fiction and nonfiction all year via email

"Night has fallen. People unzip their suits and embark. Voices call out and are echoed by others. Each sound is a beat, a rhythm. Even a screech is song. Under these stars there are no rules, no limits, and no secret handshakes. Here, you are welcome. Night Music is an inclusive journal of poetry, nonfiction, mixed genre, and reviews. Writers of color, LGBTQIA writers, and writers who have ever been shushed are especially encouraged to submit. The more voices, the richer the music. This night isn’t silent."

Journal 2jmww. jmww is an online journal that publishes individual pieces with a straightforward visual aesthetic. No fee submissions in poetry, fiction and nonfiction via email.  Check out their interview with Duotrope here.

"jmww is a literary journal publishing fiction, flash, poetry, essays, interviews, and other miscellany weekly. We are happy you found us! We want to see your work, but don’t be all stalkerish."
Journal 3deLugedeLuge is an online literary and arts journal devoted to the wealth of creativity that arises from dreams - directly or indirectly - and from the deeply felt/experienced life. We present works that catches the breath, that resonates like the low hum of a bass cello. W
ork that dazzles slant or straight on, that brings us to epiphany, to the cliff's edge or that rises through quiet presence. 
$2 submissions in all genres via 

"For each issue, we will carefully select quality work that speak to, from and about the inner experience. We accept all genres, from traditional to experimental forms including (but not limited to) poems, stories, fairy tales, essays, memoir pieces, short and flash fiction, creative out of the box writing pieces, drawings, paintings, collages, sculpture, photography, music.

We are looking for well-wrought work that dazzles, catches our breath, resonates like the low hum of the bass cello. Dazzle slant or straight on, bring us to epiphany, to the cliff edge or show us through quiet – however the work sings, we are looking for work that leaves us feeling your piece long after that note finishes."

Get your writing out there! You got this! I know it's mid-week, but spending just a little bit of time with reading well-crafted creative writing in the middle of the week it can keep your creativity a little fresher when the weekend comes around. I think, at least.

Also a gentle reminder that Sparked is reading submissions of writing from Notebooking Daily prompts, so send them work now! And if you thought this post was helpful, consider shooting me a buck or two for my own future submissions or to help pay writers for Sparked (which comes out of my pocket). No pressure though. I'm just trying to get better with the begging for pennies, submission fees in 2020 are pretty monumental and 2021 is shaping up to be just as bad!
