LandLocked opens for submissions in August and closes April 1. We publish fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, hybrid and experimental forms, and art. We also accept translations in every genre. Please see specific genre requirements for more information before submitting.

We seek to publish diverse voices, including works by writers who are people of color, queer, transgender, disabled, indigenous, international, and/or underrepresented in literary magazines. We are interested in work that breaks the boundaries of tradition, form, and genre, that engages thoughtfully with experimentation, and that explores a place unnavigable. We are very open and encouraging of all kinds of unique work, so the best way to get a feel for what we are currently interested in would be to peruse our most recent issues.

We do not accept previously published work (this includes work shared on social media or anywhere else online). Simultaneous submissions are accepted and encouraged, but please contact us immediately upon acceptance elsewhere and withdraw your submission on Submittable. Please submit only once per reading period unless solicited or invited to submit again. We do, however, allow submissions to multiple genres within the same reading period.
