woolgathering: Now Seeking Submissions

Updated November 4th 2021 4 pm: Their website is currently down due to too many visitors. Please do not visit the link at this time.

woolgathering is a new journal established in 2021 and based in the Philippines.  Their goal is to publish new and established writers from around the world. They publish art, prose, and poetry. They prefer the prose to be under 1,000 words in length. They have no stated length preference for poetry.

woolgathering has a beautiful and satisfying website. It’s very easy to interact with. They’ve published three issues so far. You can read the most recent issue here.

They nominate work for the Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize.

Please note that they are not interested in work with cliched language. They are much more interested in seeing different perspectives on the world. They also are not interested in work with racist, fascist, or misogynistic themes.

They are not interested in previously published work but they are open to simultaneous submissions as long as you notify them right away if your work is accepted elsewhere.

They try to respond to all submissions within two weeks. Submissions must be made via email and you must follow all of their guidelines in order for your work to be submitted. For the subject of the email, write your name and the type of literature you are submitting (prose or poetry).

They read all submissions blind.

To learn more, or to submit please go to their website.
