Call for Submissions: Short Fiction at Lilith Magazine

Fields: writing, jewish, identity, women, cultural exchange

Location: Remote, Freelance

About the Organization:

Lilith Magazine welcomes submissions of high-quality, lively, original writing: reporting, analysis, opinion pieces, memoir, fiction and poetry with a feminist take on subjects of interest to Jewish women. Please do not send previously published work.

Here are some guidelines we hope will prove helpful.

LENGTH: Features usually run 2,500 words, news briefs 500 words or less. Fiction should be under 3,000 words. Back-page pieces run 800 words. For poetry, please submit no more than 5 poems.

IDENTIFICATION: Your name and contact information should appear on each page you send. Please also include a one- or two-sentence bio.

PAYMENT: Writers and artists are paid for their work in Lilith, in print and on the blog.

SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSION: You must let us know If your submission is being sent to another publication simultaneously. And we ask that you please inform us immediately if a work you have asked Lilith to consider has been accepted elsewhere

RESPONDING TO WRITERS: Lilith has a small staff size and a large volume of submissions. Please accept our apologies that, as much as we would like to, we are simply unable to respond to each submission. We usually contact you within six months of submission if we are interested in publishing your non-fiction piece, so if you have not had a response from Lilith within six months after submitting, please feel free to send your work elsewhere.

POETRY: We have selected our poems for 2017-18, and are in the process of notifying authors of their acceptance. You can, however, continue to submit poetry, with the understanding that you may receive no response until Fall 2018.

To submit your writing, please use our electronic submission form.

While we prefer electronic submissions, we continue to accept hard-copy submissions at:
