Foxes Dancing Around: Now Seeking Submissions

Foxes Dancing Around is a brand new magazine dedicated to creating a welcoming publishing environment: “we want to be a happy, safe environment for all to submit their work!” They’re especially interested in publishing authors who have never been published before. They primarily publish fiction, but they accept poetry too.

Foxes Dancing Around was founded earlier this year by Jamie Lammers, a student at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Right now, Foxes Dancing Around is seeking submissions for their first issue on the theme of grief.

Authors of fiction may submit stories about grief, between 500 and 10,000 words. Poets may submit poems about grief, between 4 and 200 stanzas. It’s worth noting that Foxes Dancing Around accepts longer poems and stories than most literary journals.

Although Foxes Dancing Around is an English-language journal, they encourage and accept submissions in all languages. Writing in languages other than English will be published side by side with an English translation.

Foxes Dancing Around accepts submissions using a form on their website, and via email. They do not accept submissions by post. They do not accept previously published work; however, they do accept writing originally published in journals that are now defunct and inaccessible (not available in print or online).

Foxes Dancing Around only accepts submissions that follow the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
