Literary Magazine

Submissions

We are currently open to submissions of writing, art, and music for our March/April 2021 issue until 4/08.

Our literary magazine publishes bi-monthly. We are looking for work that expresses honest opinions and emotional responses to timely and relevant personal or world issues. You are eligible for submission if you are between the ages of 13 and 24. 

 

We do not accept previously published work unless it has been published only in print or it has been recognized in a contest. Works from personal blogs or personal social media accounts are also accepted. We allow simultaneous submissions as long as we are notified at our email (editor@theincandescentreview.org) immediately after the piece's acceptance in another publication.

 

Submissions must go through Jotform. If you have any trouble with Jotform, please email your submissions to editor@theincandescentreview.org with the subject heading, "Attn: Submission."
