Lowestoft Chronicle: Now Accepting Submissions

Lowestoft Chronicle is a long-running electronic literary journal. Their tagline is “perspectives on travel & the like”. They publish a wide variety of genres but state, “Preference will be given to humorous submissions with an emphasis on travel”. They are only interested in original works in English. You can get a feel for what they publish by reading their most recent issue here.

In terms of prose of any kind including fiction, narrative nonfiction, commentary, slice of life, and memoir, work should be under 3,000 words. They tend to publish work on the shorter side of things, although they do prefer their poetry over 100 words in length. They ask that you only submit one or two poems per submission window.

They accept simultaneous submissions as long as you notify them right away if your work is accepted elsewhere. They ask for first rights, which is to say the rights revert back to you within 30 days of them publishing a piece, but they still get credit as the first publisher if the work goes on to be reprinted.

They close to submissions on February 15th, 2024.

All submissions must be made via email, either in the body of the email or as an attachment. They ask that you include your name, pen name if needed, the title of your work and brief bio. They also need to know if it is fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. It can take them around a month to reply.
