Posit is interested in finely crafted, innovative literary and visual art. We accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that you inform us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
Posit considers only unpublished written work, and acquires first-time North American rights to accepted work. After publication, all rights revert to the author and the work may be reprinted as long as appropriate acknowledgement to Posit is made.
Posit is a labor of love, paywall and advertising-free, run by an all-volunteer staff of poets and artists. Out of consideration for the editors' time and energy, please take the time to read what we publish before submitting your work to us, and do so only if you have reason to believe yours is the kind of work we might be looking for. Although we welcome submissions from prior contributors, we ask that you wait six months after your publication before offering us new work. Also, we will consider only one submission from any author or artist at a time; please do not simultaneously submit work to us in more than one category.
Posit is open year round for visual art submissions. Our current reading period for poetry and prose will close on June 15, 2020.
NOTE: Should we receive our maximum number of submissions for any given month, Submittable will automatically close our submissions until the 1st day of the following month.
You may contact us with any questions or concerns at: positeditor at gmail dot com.
