Web Edition Submission Guidelines

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Ninth Letter will be accepting submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for a special online edition to be published at ninthletter.com in Winter 2019.  Submissions will be open from September 1 to November 4.
 
The theme for this issue is Haunting. We can be haunted by things, by people, by places, by moments; by what we’ve done and what’s been done to us. We can be haunted by the past; haunted, even, by the future. We can be haunted by what we know, and by what we never will.Show us what haunts you.
 
You may submit up to three poems, or one piece of short prose (fiction or nonfiction) of up to 3500 words; please also include a cover letter that briefly explains how you see your work connecting to the theme. Note: work submitted without this information may be withdrawn. Acceptable file formats are .doc, .docx, .rtf, and .pdf.
 
Submit your work for this special feature at ninthletteronline.submittable.com. Submissions sent via snail mail or submitted through our general submissions at ninthletter.com will not be considered for this issue. 
Please do not send multiple submissions or previously published work.
 
Authors whose work is selected for this special feature will receive a small honorarium ($25 per poem, $75 per story or essay) and a complimentary 2-­year subscription to Ninth Letter.
