FEED: Now Seeking Submissions

FEED is an online journal of short-form writing, seeking to satisfy the hunger of modern readers. Serving up bite-sized poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, FEED hopes to satiate the need for literature in a fast-paced world: “…the editors of FEED aim to serve readers through the same format we’re creating from: on screens, with space and time constraints, in the stolen in-between moments of the day.”

FEED is published weekly online. Each digital edition contains work from around five contributors. They publish a wide range of styles, but in general, they prefer stark, impactful imagery. Submitting authors can read the journal online to get a sense of what they’re looking for.

FEED accepts submissions year-round, and submitting authors can expect a response within one to two weeks. Poets may submit three to five poems, totaling six pages or fewer. Authors of prose—fiction or nonfiction—may submit up to three pieces, 750 words or fewer each, totaling nine pages or fewer. FEED also accepts hybrid writing that blends poetry and prose.

Since FEED is meant to be consumed on the go, they aim to keep the publication readable on mobile devices. For that reason, they don’t accept poetry that relies on special formatting.

FEED accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.

FEED only accepts submissions that adhere to the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
