Our literary magazine is always looking for new submissions, and we would love to receive a submission (or multiple submissions) from you! Not all submissions will be accepted to appear in the magazine, but we welcome everyone and encourage you to keep trying.
Each issue, our editors select a few themes that we would like our submissions to focus on. We encourage (but do not require) you to submit work related to our themes. Our September 21st (Anniversary Issue) themes are:
- Annum: it’s our birthday! What other things do people celebrate yearly? What is year one?
- A Day of Stars: in honor of H.G. Wells and the newborn star Writer’s Block. What star do you know?
- A Day of Scars: in memoriam of the 12th year after 9/11. What scars do you have?
If you would like to submit work to Writer’s Block, please follow our guidelines. Submit work for our next – Anniversary! – issue, to be released on September 21st.
