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.
