reading period open: At Length magazine
- At Length (atlengthmag.com) is now considering submissions of poetry
and prose. Please see below for specific guidelines, and please note
that open reading period will end on March 31.
We’re interested in poems and sequences that are at least 7
single-spaced pages long. Please send a Word document or PDF to
<poetry(at)atlengthmag.com>. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but be
to mention it in the body of the email, and if parts of the work have
already appeared in other venues, please note that as well and provide
all relevant details. We will attempt to respond to all submissions
within one month, and we ask that you only submit one poem at a time.
We’re looking for fiction and non-fiction of at least 7,500 words in
length. We welcome novellas, novel excerpts, memoirs, narratives,
essays, and long short stories. No academic papers, please.
Simultaneous submissions are fine; previously published pieces, not so
much. Please send your work in a Word or .pdf file to
<prose(at)atlengthmag.com>, along with a short biographical note. We’ll
our best to respond within a month.
Additionally, At Length is seeking submissions from writers of all
stripes for a recurring feature in its art section. The feature will
include and promote prose pieces (essays, prose poems,
letters-to-the-world) that explore one work of art. The first
installment, an essay by poet Anna Journey on Remedios Varo’s Catedral
vegetal, can be found here. Please send a query letter with a brief
synopsis to At Length’s art editor, Elaine Bleakney, at
