Dear Contributors, Please note that as of Sept. 1, 2020 we are temporarily closed for new submissions in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. We're working hard to read and respond to our existing submissions while also managing a re-start after shutting down for the coronavirus pandemic. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are, however, open for submissions in Multi-media.
NOTE: PURCHASING A BACK ISSUE DOES NOT ENABLE YOU TO SUBMIT YOUR ORIGINAL CREATIVE WORK
Thank you for being Normal! Please check back with us soon as we hope to be reopening for submissions soon. -- Editors

The Normal School is currently seeking multi-media submissions of comics, graphic fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, photo and video essays, spoken word pieces, and audio prose and poetry. Please identify the genre in your cover letter.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE SUBMISSION CATEGORY FOR STANDARD FICTION, POETRY, OR NONFICTION. IF YOUR PIECE IS NOT MULTI-MEDIA, IT WILL BE REJECTED.
The Normal School Online has a strong emphasis on representing diverse and traditionally under-represented voices and perspectives; and we prefer content that challenges the status quo.
Note: Please do not send us work under a pseudonym or pen-name unless you inform us of this in your cover letter.
