Send up to 5 poems in either pdf or Word format. We prefer free verse and are more fond of visual poetry than formal rhyme schemes, although rhyming does not disqualify your work. We will also consider poems in Spanish, French, Italian or German with an English translation (poem and translation counts as one poem and both parts will be printed).

Send up to 3 comic strips or cartoons, single or multiple panel, in pdf or jpg form. Please send thumbnails and we will contact you for larger versions if we select your work.

Pending payment, all submissions will receive a response within a month of their submission date. If your work is selected you will be asked for biographical information and we will work with you to make sure that your work is displayed in a way that makes you happy. If you are not already a subscriber, you will receive the issue of Synkroniciti magazine that features it for free. We are approaching the point at which we will be able to pay an honorarium but cannot promise this quite yet.
If your work is selected we request the right to publish it in both the e-book and blog-style versions of the Synkroniciti magazine. You may also volunteer to be part of our promotional release. With your permission, we will use your work or part of your work to advertise the magazine to potential subscribers.
