BlueHouse is now accepting submissions for our first issue! We are looking for cross-genre, experimental, contemporary work that fizzes in the mind and lingers long after it’s read.
Submission deadline: 1 August 2019
The All Those Things Left Unsaid project is currently open for submissions of letters, poems, stories, or other creative forms, on the topic of ‘Things left unsaid’. This could be secrets never before told, conversations you wish you had had, or anything else that fits the topic.
All submissions should be previously unpublished.
Prose pieces should be no longer than 1,000 words as an absolute maximum, preferably shorter.
Send one .doc or .docx attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘Submission’ in the email header.
Please explain briefly how the piece fits the brief of ‘Things left unsaid’. Authors will remain anonymous or be given a pseudonym, unless they explicitly request to be named, and only then if is legally safe to do so.
Anything published on the site – copyright remains with the author.
Those of you who have been with Palm-Sized Press since the end of 2017 know that we put together a small zine of flash fiction and art. This new magazine will also incorporate articles on writing and craft, and we’ll be looking into opportunities to include submissions and events listings, interviews, and more.
We are so excited to launch our new bi-annual magazine! Issues will be available in print and digital forms. With this new venture, we will also be re-releasing the Retrospective zine – so keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.
Contributors who have work chosen for the issue will receive a small payment. In order to make this possible, there will be a small submission fee of $2, but with it you can submit as many pieces as you’d like for the summer issue. Submission fees will be processed through our new Patreon page (through contributions on any tier), but you can also use the Paypal link in our submissions forms.
We’ll be accepting:
Deadline: 19 May
To submit your work, use the forms located on our Submissions page.

We’re also taking pre-orders for the brand new Rituals Issue!
Pixel Heart Literary Magazine is currently open for submissions for its second issue. The theme is ‘Pride’, and the magazine is accepting positive LGBT+ fiction and poetry for this issue, to coincide with the theme.
Pixel Heart publishes flash fiction (under 750 words), poetry (of any length), and short stories (1,000 – 2,500 words).
There is no submission fee, and we’d love to read anything you’d like to send to us, whether you’re a new or experienced writer. In this issue we’re aiming to publish as many LGBT+ writers as possible, and, as always while all submissions are considered with care, if writers state in their submission email that they are people of colour, disabled, working class, and/or LGBT+ then their submission will be given a little extra attention.
So if you’re a writer with a positive LGBT+ story or poem, we’d love to read and consider it, so please consider submitting to us!
