This Issue's Theme:
Reap & Sow


Submission Guidelines:

  • Poetry, fiction, and nonfiction are all accepted.

  • Fiction and nonfiction pieces should be between 500 and 7000 words. Poetry should not exceed 2000 words.

  • Limit one piece per author for fiction and nonfiction. Multiple submissions are accepted for poetry, but no more than three. If you are submitting multiple poems, please attach them all in one document.

  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please notify us if your piece is accepted somewhere else. Previously published work is not accepted unless it was published in a now-defunct magazine.

  • Pieces that do not fit the theme of the issue will still be accepted—it is not a "hard and fast" rule. We accept all interpretations of the theme, as well as pieces that break away from it.

  • Follow the link below to our Submittable account to submit your piece. [Pieces submitted editors’ personal emails will not be accepted.]

  • If your work has been accepted in a previous issue of littledeath, please wait one full submission cycle before submitting again. (For example, if you were accepted in Issue One, you may submit again for Issue Three.)

  • If you encounter any issues or errors, please check our Twitter, @littledeathlit, for updates. This is the easiest way to keep up to date with us and the submission process.

  • Any questions can be e-mailed to

Submissions are open for Fall 2019.
