FEED currently accepts all submissions on a rolling basis.
All submissions must be single spaced in a single .doc/.docx or plain text format file. Files should be titled with the writer’s name and the submission’s genre (EX: NAME – GENRE).
Submissions should include a brief third-person biography of 75 words or less on the final page of the submission file. See genre specifications below for additional requirements:
- Poetry – Send three to five unpublished pieces of poetry in a single document. Limit one poem per page; six pages maximum.
- Prose – Send up to three unpublished pieces of short prose in a single document. Limit 750 words per piece; nine pages maximum.
FEED’s commitment to media that is mobile-friendly means that, unfortunately, we are unable to publish works that require special formatting, such as shaped poems or works that rely heavily on spacing. Pieces that are not format-compatible will be declined.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged—just let us know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to withdraw your submission.
We are humbled by each of our readers and submitters. While we are unable to pay contributors at this time, we remain committed to working with and promoting the works of our writers on FEED’s social media pages.
Submitters will generally hear from FEED editors within one to two weeks; please allow at least one month to pass before inquiring about submissions. We ask that authors wait three months before submitting further work to FEED for consideration; contributors are asked to wait six months.
