Ex/Post Magazine: Now Seeking Submissions

Ex/Post is a brand new online magazine publishing daring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, essays, plays, and more. They’re looking for of-the-moment writing, and they love experimental work: “Send us your secret radio transmissions or your experiments gone awry,” they say, “we will welcome all of it.”  

Since publishing their first issue earlier this year, Ex/Post has quickly garnered praise from all corners of the literary world. The journal, along with its sister project Dear Loneliness, has been recognized by The Boston Globe, Her Campus, and Harvard Economics Review. Their avant-garde aesthetic and design expertise make for a visually stunning digital presentation. You can get a sense of their style by reading the journal online.

Now through October 15, Ex/Post Magazine is accepting submissions for their second issue. Submitting authors can expect a response within a few weeks.

Poets may submit up to five poems. Ex/Post also accepts videos of spoken word. Authors of fiction and nonfiction may submit up to three pieces, 7,000 words or fewer total. Authors of dramas may submit up to two one-act plays, 10 pages or fewer each. Ex/Post reads all submissions blind.

Each issue of Ex/Post also features a “Young Writer Spotlight,” so authors under 18 who are interested in being featured should note their age.

All authors published in Ex/Post Magazine receive an honorarium.

Ex/Post is currently accepting applications from BIPOC creators for a microgrant. Two winners will receive $100 and publication of their portfolio. Microgrant submissions are open to BIPOC creators through October 15.

Ex/Post Magazine accepts submissions online, not via email or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They also accept multiple submissions. They ask that authors note both simultaneous and multiple submissions in a cover letter.  They do not accept previously published work.
