Salamander: Now Seeking Submissions

***Please note, there has been an uptick in publishers that are not accepting unagented submissions. Too many presses and publishers are getting mass submissions that do not fit their catalogs. DO NOT submit your work if it doesn’t fit the publisher’s guidelines.

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.

How to Submit to Salamander

Here’s what you need to know about submitting to this journal:

  • Poets may send up to five poems.
  • Authors of fiction and memoir may submit one full-length piece or up to three flashes.
  • Only submit once per reading period.

Salamander accepts submissions through an online submission manager. They don’t take submissions via email or by post.

The journal accepts simultaneous submissions but asks authors to withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not take previously published pieces.

Good luck to all of you who choose to submit. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you.

And if you are accepted, please let me know! I’d love to read your work and pass it along to a friend.
