Salamander is an established and respected print journal of poetry, fiction, memoir, and translation work. The journal has international distribution channels and calls Suffolk University home. They print two editions each year.
The journal has several sponsors, including the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Council for Literary Magazines and Presses, Bradford College, and the Brookline Council on the Arts and Humanities. They like to showcase both emerging and established authors and underrepresented voices.
Salamander is open for submissions now through April 1, 2021, but will take a holiday break from late December through early January. They do not accept submissions outside of this time.
It’s also important to note that the journal does hold writing contests as well. You may want to check back in with them periodically to see when they are accepting submissions for that.
They are also a paying publisher but are unable to disclose their rates at this time.
