We’re excited to read your work! Woolgathering Magazine invites writers from around the world to send us the best of their arts.
We accept literature from people of all ages, including first-timers to experienced writers. While we do not accept previously published works, we do accept simultaneous submissions— but please inform us if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
By submitting to Woolgathering Magazine, you are granting us the non-exclusive right to publish your work and archive it perpetually, as long as the site remains online. Writers retain their copyright in all cases. If your work is subsequently reprinted elsewhere, please acknowledge Woolgathering Magazine as the site of first publication. Please note that we are unable to pay our contributors.
Tip – avoid cliches! We want to know more about your own unique view of the world, not something that has been explored before by many others.
We are pleased to announce that we also nominate our authors for the Best of the Net Anthology and Pushcart Prizes.
For any of the below genres, feel free to note in your submission if you are a young writer (ages 18 and under) for special inclusion in the 'zine.
Prose – up to 2 pieces at a time, 2000 words maximum preferred (across pieces).
Poetry – 6 works maximum.
Art – Send them all! Include an artist’s statement as well.
Miscellaneous – Have something that doesn’t fit the above? Woolgathering Magazine welcomes all art even if translated through an unconventional medium. Title your subject line: “MISC. (First and Last Name)”.
Please submit only once per issue.
For the subject of the email, please write your name and the type of literature you are submitting: “TYPE - (First and Last Name)”.
Please submit your work in a PDF or a DOCX file.
All submissions are read blind; however, to expedite the publishing process, please include a brief third-person biography with your cover letter.
Please wait at least a month before submitting again if you have been published by Woolgathering.
We will try to get back to you within two weeks. If we have not done so, please send us a follow up email.
