The Racket: Now Seeking Submissions

Originally a San Francisco reading series featuring local authors, The Racket is now a weekly online journal with voices from around the globe. Since the launch of The Racket reading series in 2017, it’s become a popular place for flash fiction, flash nonfiction, and poetry. And no wonder—the downloadable journal is thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted, a visual treat.

Each weekly edition of The Racket features work from around ten contributors. They accept submissions on a rolling basis.

Authors of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction may submit work, 750 words or fewer. Authors can submit multiple pieces as long as the total word count of all the pieces does not exceed 750 words. The Racket also accepts artwork. To get a sense of their style before submitting, the editor suggests downloading the journal for free online.

The Racket 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.

If you would like to learn more or submit to The Racket, please visit their website here.
