Minnow Literary Magazine: Now Seeking Submissions

Minnow Literary Magazine is an online publisher of “minnow-sized literary works and visual creative works that make a big splash.” They’re interested in micro poetry, flash fiction, and short personal essays, and they especially like writing about nature.

Minnow has been published online for two years now, and so far they’ve released four quarterly issues. Each edition contains work from around 30 contributors from around the world.

Right now through January 9th, 2022, Minnow is seeking submissions for their upcoming Winter 2021/2022 issue. Although they’ll consider writing on any theme, they’re always seeking writing inspired by nature.

Poets may submit three to five micro poems, 150 words or fewer each. Authors of flash fiction may submit up to three flashes, 500 words or fewer each. Authors of short personal essays may submit up to two pieces, 1,500 words or fewer each. Authors of all genres should submit no more than once each month.

Minnow Literary Magazine accepts submissions via email, not through an online submission manager or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work; however, they do accept writing previously shared on personal social media.

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