to see if we're open for submissions & if so, what we're open for, visit our Submittable page. if all you see are SUBMITTER'S DISCOUNT SUBSCRIPTION categories, newly submitted work should never be attached to these forms; they're only for past/present submitters who'd like to take advantage of the discount we offer those who send work when we're open.
IMPORTANT NOTE FROM OUR EDITORS ABOUT SUBMITTING
Knowing what we like to publish before choosing what to send us only makes sense. Please peruse a copy of Gigantic Sequins before sending us your best work. We keep our issues affordable at $7.50, and many of our early back issues go for less. You can subscribe to GS or buy an issue via our online store or pick one up at a bookstore or an event.. If you submit work to us for consideration during one of our open periods, you are eligible for a Submitter's Discount subscription for up to 6 months after sending your work. Another way to see what we have previously published is to browse select work we have archived online, though we do recommend purchasing an issue.
OPEN PERIODS TIMELINE
Our open reading periods for unsolicited submissions typically run June 1-August 15 and December 1-February 15, though these dates are subject to change/occasional extensions. For example, during the summer of 2019, we will not be having a general open period, though we will be open for contests. A related announcement will come later this summer.
