Heimat Review: Now Seeking Submissions

Heimat Review is a new online quarterly of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. “Heimat” means home, and Heimat Review aims to create a home for insightful writing: “It is a journal of treehouses and chipped coffee mugs; creaky floors and dusty corners. A place to tape your work to the kitchen fridge.” They’re looking for writing that invites reflection and offers a renewed or reimagined sense of presence and place. You can read the journal online get an idea of what they publish.

Heimat launched their first online issue this autumn. The thoughtfully designed journal features writing from over 25 contributors. It’s carefully curated into meaningful chapter-like sections beginning with, “Our Roots” and ending with “What Remains”. There’s even an “Interlude” section in the middle.

Now through December 15, Heimat is accepting submissions for their winter 2022 edition. Poets may submit up to five poems. Authors of fiction and nonfiction may submit up to three pieces, 3,000 words or fewer each. Heimat accepts flash writing.

They also accept dramas. Dramaturgists may submit up to three ten-minute or one-act plays. Heimat accepts stage and radio plays, but not teleplays or screenplays.

Authors may submit writing in more than one genre. Heimat reads submissions blind, so authors should take care to remove identifying information from submitted writing.

Heimat 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.

Submitting authors can expect a response within one to six weeks.

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