Submission Guidelines

great weather for MEDIA seeks poetry, flash fiction, short stories, dramatic monologues, and creative nonfiction for our annual print anthology.

Our focus is on edgy and experimental themes and styles. We highly recommend coming to one of our events, or reading our collections The Understanding between Foxes and Light and It’s Animal but Merciful, to see the type of work we are interested in. Let us know in your cover letter how you found us, and any feedback on what we have done so far. We are based in New York City and welcome submissions from both national and international writers. For submission tips, check out our interview on Duotrope.

Submissions are open from October 15th through January 15th every year. Need a reminder? Sign up to our monthly newsletter.


We do not consider previously published work, whether print or online. This includes limited edition chapbooks and personal blogs. We accept online submissions only.

Writers whose work appears in our most recent collection, The Understanding between Foxes and Light, are very welcome to submit. Priority though will be given to new voices.

Payment: One contributor copy, plus $10 for writers based in USA. International writers receive two copies.

Simultaneous submissions are fine with immediate notification if accepted elsewhere. Contact us to share your good news. Include the date you submitted the work.

We accept MS Word documents (Times New Roman 11 or 12 pt preferred) and will consider:

1-4 poems of any length. Single-spaced please, or how it should appear on the printed page.
1 prose/creative nonfiction piece, 2 if under 500 words. Maximum word count: 2,500. Prose should be double-spaced and in English.
Please place all work of the same genre in one attachment.

Do wait until you hear back from us before submitting new work for consideration. Good luck with your writing!

Copyright: great weather for MEDIA holds first serial rights for material that we publish. The copyright automatically reverts to the author upon publication. All work may be permanently archived online. We ask that great weather for MEDIA be acknowledged in any subsequent publication of the work.

All writers who submit are added to our monthly email newsletter. You are welcome to unsubscribe at anytime – no hard feelings!
