Arakana 14th Issue seeks Micro-submissions


Deadline: April 2, 2023

We publish work by established and emerging writers unaffiliated with the University of Central Arkansas. We accept previously unpublished fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, scripts for the stage or screen, translation, artwork, and illustrated narrative through our Submittable submission manager.

Simultaneous submissions are always welcome. We only ask that you withdraw your piece as soon as you accept another opportunity.

As a journal of mysteries and marginalized voices, we’re looking for quality writing that is thought-provoking and literary. We are especially interested in work that explores the identities and experiences of writers from the Delta region, BIPOC, immigrant, LGBTQ+, women, disabled, and neurodivergent writers, the resource-poor, writers over 50, those who have experienced or been impacted by incarceration, or anyone whose voices have traditionally been silenced.


Submissions for Arkana’s 14th issue, The Micro Issue, are open from October 17, 2022, until April 2, 2023.

Fiction: We’re looking for polished fiction of up to 500 words.

Creative Nonfiction: Send us your essays, your memoirs, and your investigations of up to 500 words.

Poetry: Submit up to five poems of ten lines or less.

Scripts: Please submit scripts for the stage or screen that would last, if performed, five minutes or less.

Artwork: Photographs or images to be published alongside literary work. Photographs and images should speak to Arkana‘s mission and aesthetic.
