Door is a Jar Magazine seeks submissions

web site

Door is a Jar Magazine is looking for well-crafted poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama and artwork for the Spring issue of its bi-annual online publication. Please read over these submission guidelines carefully before submitting any work. Contributors can submit to multiple categories; however, only submit once to each category per submission period. The submission period for the Spring issue opens September 1, 2015 and will close April 1, 2016.
Our publication steers away from academic writing and publishes short, conversational works that use familiar language. Our magazine features new artists and writers and works that are accessible for all readers. Please look at our current and archived issues before submitting your work. Works that are confusing, abstract, or unnecessarily fancy will not be considered. Our entry guards stand firm against academic jigsaw puzzles. 

We only accept new, unpublished work. If you have posted something to your website or social media, this counts as being published.
Email your submissions to doorisajarmagazine@gmail.com with the category you are submitting to and your last name in the subject line. Within the email please include your full name, contact info, and a fun 5-sentence bio. (We're not as interested in how many degrees you have, or how widely you've been published. Instead, we want to hear about the real you. We want to know about the little things that spur you along.)
We accept simultaneous submissions; however, please notify us immediately if a piece is accepted elsewhere. We reserve first initial publishing rights and then all rights revert back to the author. We do not pay contributors at this time. 

Drama: Following the Standard American Format, submit up to 2 short plays attached as a Word or Pages document, with the genre and contributor name as the file name. Each play should not exceed two pages in length.
