The Normal School Online is currently seeking submissions of comics, graphic fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, photo and video essays, spoken word pieces, and audio prose and poetry--the kind of multi-media writing and art we can't easily publish in our print magazine.
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.
For all submissions to The Normal School Online Magazine we consider works of nonfiction, fiction and poetry. We are also looking for insightful reviews of current work (graphic novels, new books, classics, etc.), especially by writers of color, as well as interviews with authors and artists.
If you have current or topical work, send it quick!
WE WANT SHORT! Please don’t send us your 40-page tomes or epic poems. We’re looking for quick reads, anything under 2000 words or 10 pages, (12-point font, double-spaced, with 1” margins).
Also our online mag has a strong emphasis on representing diverse and under-represented voices and perspectives; we want content that challenges the status quo.
-Please indicate in cover letter the genre of your submission (fiction, poetry, nonfiction, review, criticism, interview, etc.)
-Please do not send us work under a pseudonym or penname unless you inform us of this in your cover letter.
-Simultaneous submissions are accepted but please let us know immediately if your work has been picked up somewhere else.
