Tilted House: Now Seeking Submissions

Titled House is a New Orleans based press that publishes a print and online journal of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, plays, and reviews. They aim to produce a diverse publication that’s, “multi-generational, multi-racial, multi-educated” and international. Although they showcase a wide range of writing, they especially love experimental work. They publish both emerging and established authors.

Tilted House publishes a biannual journal as well as an online magazine. The journal—The Tilted House Review—is handbound in small batches and features a letterpressed cover. It’s also available as a free downloadable PDF.

Tilted House’s online publication—The Titled House Web Magazine—is published weekly and features work from one to two authors.

Tilted House accepts submissions separately for the two publications, The Tilted House Review and The Tilted House Web Magazine. The guidelines are similar, but they accept somewhat longer writing for The Tilted House Web Magazine.

For The Tilted House Review: Poets may submit up to three poems. Authors of fiction may submit up to two short stories totaling 1,000 words or fewer, or up to three flashes totaling 800 words or fewer. They also accept excerpts from longer works of fiction. Authors of creative nonfiction may submit up to two essays totaling 1,000 words or fewer. Authors of plays may submit one short play or an excerpt from a longer work, 1,000 words or fewer. The Tilted House Review also accepts reviews. They like reviews on anything—not just books—and advise authors to, “Get weird.” Authors may submit one review, 1,000 words or fewer.

The current deadline to submit to The Tilted House Review is March 16. Authors published in The Tilted House Review receive one copy of the handbound journal.

For The Tilted House Web Magazine: Poets may submit up to three poems. Authors of fiction may submit up to two short stories totaling 2,000 words or fewer, or up to three flashes totaling 1,000 words or fewer. They also accept excerpts from longer works of fiction. Authors of creative nonfiction may submit up to two essays totaling 2,000 words or fewer. Authors of plays may submit one short play or an excerpt from a longer work, 2,000 words or fewer. Like The Tilted House Review, The Tilted House Web Magazine accepts reviews on anything, not just books. Authors may submit one review, 2,000 words or fewer. The Tilted House Web Magazine accepts submissions on a rolling basis.

Tilted House accepts submissions in all languages, as long as the writing is accompanied by an English translation. The Tilted House Review accepts submissions online, not via email or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work. Submitting authors should wait at least three months before submitting again.

Tilted House only accepts submissions that adhere to the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
