Sweet publishes emerging and established writers three times a year--September,
January, and May. Past contributors include: Lee Martin, Tim Seibles, Lee Ann
Roripaugh, Ann Panning, Aimee Nezhukamatathil, Nin Andrews, Dinty W. Moore.
Sweet seeks only poetry and creative nonfiction, graphic nonfiction and anything
in between. Sorry, fiction writers! We read submissions all year. Simultaneous
submissions are accepted, but please notify us immediately if your work has
been taken by another literary journal (we'd like to be the first to
congratulate you). Our preferred submission size is 3-5 poems. For creative
non-fiction, we prefer 2-3 short-short creative nonfiction pieces or one longer
one. Essays should not exceed 1,500 words total.
For Graphic Nonfiction: Sweet welcomes submissions of previously unpublished
nonfiction cartoons, graphic narratives and photo essays that demonstrate both
artistic and literary merit. We are interested in traditional forms and new
innovative techniques. Submissions can be in color or black and white. Please
format submission in a single .doc, as a .pdf or a .jpg series.
We accept submissions through our online submission manager. Please include a
brief cover letter and bio with your submission. Also, after sending us a
portfolio of work, please wait to hear back before sending another.
