Anklebiters Journal is a DIY literary, arts, sounds, and video cacophony published once a year. We publish each journal under a different title.
If you would like to submit to our journal, please see our online issues to get a feel and carefully review the guidelines below.
- Anklebiters Journal is published once a year.
- You can send us work anytime.
- Anklebiters solicits work from artists we know, but we always leave room for submissions, too.
- Please allow plenty of time for a response. We will let you know that we received your work within a month, but the reply to your work may come up to 2 months later.
- Please do not submit work that has already been published by you or anyone else.
- Simultaneous submissions are welcome, just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.
- At no point do we own your work more than you, but if you go on to publish it again, please mention it appeared in Anklebiters first (props).
- If your work is accepted, you will receive a free copy of the journal.
Send all submissions with a cover letter and short bio to email@example.com.
