COUNTERCLOCK: Now Seeking Submissions

Updated April 2019

Launched in the summer of 2017, COUNTERCLOCK is a new online journal of literature and art. They publish poetry, fiction, nonfiction, cross-genre work, and visual art. COUNTERCLOCK aims to provide a platform for healing and empowerment through literature. They are looking for writing that articulates the infinite nuance of experience and expression. They want to showcase diversity and spotlight the many faces of humanity’s resilience. They nominate work for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

COUNTERCLOCK is published quarterly online. Poets may submit up to five pages of poetry. COUNTERCLOCK also accepts brief films of performance poetry. Authors of prose may submit up to three works of fiction or creative nonfiction, 6,000 words or fewer each. All submissions should be accompanied by a brief third-person bio. Cover letters are optional. COUNTERCLOCK encourages authors to submit their work in multiple categories.

COUNTERCLOCK accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors let them know if a piece is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work; however, they do accept work that has been published on social media or personal websites.

Keeping COUNTERCLOCK accessible to a diverse group of authors is important to them, so they are committed to sustaining fee-free submissions. The do have an option to pay 3 dollars for a response within 48 hours.
