SUBMISSIONS


FICTION & GENERAL GUIDELINES

  • Email your submissions to X-R-A-Y Literary Magazine at xraylitmag@gmail.com
  • We want prose only. No poetry, please.
  • Send your work as .doc or .docx files, please, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please keep fiction under 2,000 words.
  • One piece per submission, please. Wait until you hear from us before you submit again.
  • You may submit your work elsewhere, no problem.
  • Please write the subject line of your email as:

[YOUR LAST NAME], [TITLE], [SPECIFY: FICTION, REVIEW, EXCERPT, etc.] [WORD COUNT]

  • Also, include this information at the top page of your submission. That helps us keep response times down, and we shoot for 3-4 weeks.
  • While we’re not saying “no” to anyone who wants to submit, genre fiction might find a better home elsewhere.
  • Exposure to the website carries a small risk of radiation poisoning. We suggest wearing a lead apron while submitting.

REVIEWS, INTERVIEWS & NONFICTION

  • 2000 words or fewer.
  • You pick the subject, and we’ll see if we like it.

EXCERPTS

  • Send us a query and pdf sample.
