St Somewhere Journal

Now accepting submissions for April 2013. 
Deadline March 1, 2013

Submission Guidelines

St. Somewhere Journal is published quarterly. New issues will be released in January, April, July and October. We accept English language submissions for publication in our online journal. Works written in English lexicon dialect/creole are also encouraged, as well as translations. Submissions are accepted via email only.

We welcome all genres, though we lean toward what is typically referred to as literary. The Caribbean region is our primary focus, with secondary emphasis on works with an international or general appeal. Work that has a strong connection to these areas, either literally or philosophically, has the best chance of acceptance. However, quality carries its own weight, regardless of subject matter.

Fiction: Please submit short fiction of 5,000 words or less. Submit your fiction as an attached document or in the body of your email. We prefer a web-friendly format, meaning that we’d appreciate it if you’d single space your paragraphs and double space between paragraphs, with no indentations.

Poetry: Any form is acceptable. Unlike some publications, we have no particular bias for or against rhyming poetry or free verse. Send no more than 5 poems, single spaced in the body of your email.

Essay: Please submit essays of 5,000 words or less. Submit your essay as an attached document, or in the body of your email. We prefer a web-friendly format (see above under “fiction”). For our purposes, we consider an essay to be literary, film or cultural criticism, book reviews or creative non-fiction.

Visual Art: Submissions of visual art will be accepted and considered for use as cover art for our publication, as well as interior art. Scanned images of visual works are acceptable, as well as photography. For photography that includes identifiable individuals, you must be able to provide a copy of a signed model release form. Please submit your art work as an attachment in .jpg format.
