THE COLLAGIST is published once a month. We publish fiction, non-fiction, and poetry from general submissions, as well as book reviews, novel excerpts from upcoming releases, and special features such as our Classic Reprint series.

Please use the links below for all submissions. If sending more than one piece (a batch of poems or shorts) please include all of your submissions in a single file. Other correspondence or questions may be sent to Gabriel Blackwell at editor@thecollagist.com. Note that if you need to withdraw a piece, you'll need to do so from inside the submission manager.

Note: By submitting to THE COLLAGIST, you are also signing up for our monthly newsletter. We will rarely (if ever) e-mail except when a new issue is coming out, and we will never give out your e-mail to anyone else. Thank you.
The Collagist will consider short fictions of up to 8000 words, though much of the work we publish is considerably shorter. Our tastes are idiosyncratic, but a look at work we've published recently may help.

Simultaneous submissions are fine; multiple submissions are not. If sending very short fiction (less than 1000 words), you may submit up to three such very short fictions as a single file.

Please wait for a response before sending another submission, and please do not submit more than twice during each reading period (March 1 - July 31; October 1 - January 31).
The Collagist will consider submissions of up to 6 poems and no more than 8 pages. We enjoy reading a broad range of styles, from formal to free to experimental, and are looking to publish work that feels urgent and finely tuned.

We welcome simultaneous submissions and ask simply that you notify us by leaving a note on the submission should any of the poems be accepted elsewhere.

The Collagist will consider essays and nonfiction of up to 8000 words, though most of the work selected for publication is much shorter.
