Submissions

Early submissions for our third issue, Empathy, which will debut March 1, 2020, are open. We are looking for a cover photo for that issue and will pay a modest $25 for any image selected. You will receive a year’s worth (four issues) of the Synkroniciti Magazine E-book. Enter your work as a standard submission on or before December 9th to be considered.  The selected work will be announced December 14th. If your work is not selected for the cover, it may be selected for inclusion within the issue. 

Submissions should be emailed to synkronicitihouston@gmail.com. The submission fee is $3. Here are the categories of work we are seeking, along with submission guidelines for each category. You may submit more than one entry in one or more categories.

Don’t want to pay submission fees? Become a subscriber ($10 every six months/2issues) and you will have unlimited free entries (as long as you are currently subscribed).

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.

Poetry Submission

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). Get your work the way you want it to look on the page and we will do our best to respect it.

Comic Strip Submission

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