Submission Guidelines

Assisi accepts submissions only through Submittable:

Assisi currently accepts submissions on a rolling basis.

There is a limit of 1 submission in each genre per person within any 6-month time period. Please hold to the page length limitations below. Occasionally, longer works may be considered but you must send an inquiry directly to the editor (at regarding any work that goes beyond the set limits before submitting it.

Essays: Up to 30 pages total, double-spaced.
Short Fiction: Up to 40 pages total, double-spaced. Novel excerpts will be considered if they are self-contained.
Poetry: Up to 8 poems per submission, single or double-spaced. Please, no more than one poem per page.
Photography and Artwork: Up to 5 works per submission.

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.

Include your name, address, daytime telephone number and title(s) of submission(s) in your cover letter. NO IDENTIFICATION SHOULD APPEAR ON THE MANUSCRIPT OR ARTWORK ITSELF.

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 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.
