Submission Guidelines

Assisi currently accepts submissions on a rolling basis. All submissions must be done through our Submittable site:

PLEASE NOTE: Accepted work WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED IMMEDIATELY. We publish either two issues a year – Fall, which appears in December, and Spring, which appears in June – or a Fall/Spring Double issue in June.

Every effort is made to read submissions in a timely manner but it may take up to 8 months for you to receive a response. [PLEASE NOTE: This timeframe may be lengthened due to the pandemic. In addition to pandemic-associated difficulties, the number of submissions we are receiving has increased tremendously.] Because we do allow simultaneous submissions, you may submit your work to other journals as well as to Assisi.

SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ANONYMOUS. No identifying information (e.g. author’s name and/or address, awards received) may appear on the submission itself.

There is a limit of 1 submission in each genre per person within any 6-month time period. Please see our Submittable site for further details.

We generally do not reprint previously published work, although occasional exceptions may be made to this policy for editorial purposes. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as they are indicated as such and Assisi is notified immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere.

Assisi holds first rights for publication; we also reserve the right to use your name and the title of your work in press releases and on our social media pages. Beyond this use, and following publication in Assisi, rights revert to the author/artist providing Assisi is acknowledged in any subsequent publication of the work.
