Booth: Now Seeking Submissions

Established in 2009 by the MFA students at Butler University’s writing program, Booth publishes one new piece every Friday online as well as two aesthetically arresting print editions each year. They like rich stories and impactful poems in both experimental and traditional packaging. Booth publishes unique voices—both emerging and established—from all backgrounds. You can get a sense of their style by reading the journal online.

Booth is open to submissions from September 1 through March 31 each year. They publish all accepted submissions online, and then they select some online content to publish in their print editions.

Booth is looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, comics, and lists—but they especially like to receive the last three since they don’t get as many of those submissions. Poets may submit up to three poems. Authors of fiction and creative nonfiction may submit one piece, 7,500 words or fewer. Comic artists may submit up to twenty pages of work. They don’t accept multiple submissions; however, if they decline a submission that author may submit again anytime.

Booth accepts submissions online, not via post or by email. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors immediately withdraw work published elsewhere. They don’t accept previously published work.

If you would like to learn more or submit to Booth, please visit their website.
