Submissions have closed for our ninth issue which will go live on September 1, 2021. The theme is “birds.” Contest winners are being revealed this week. Stay tuned for the announcement of our upcoming theme.

General submissions are always open. If you have something we should see, send it in. You might even decide a future theme. Each issue has three contests: one for the cover, one in poetry and one which rotates across genres. An artist is not eligible to win in the same category until a year has passed (4 issues) but may win in another category.

Synkroniciti is a quarterly online arts journal. We accept work in a variety of media across the visual, literary and performing arts spectrum.

The submission fee is $3. The categories of work we are seeking are outlined below, along with submission guidelines for each category and a PayPal button to submit payment. You may submit more than one entry in one or more categories. We currently pay only artists winning the top prizes in our contests. We are working toward being able to pay sustainable honorariums to everyone. 

Submissions should be emailed to magazine@synkroniciti.com. Please place your name and the category of submission in the subject field of your e-mail.

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

We are very excited to announce our first print offering: Synkroniciti Imprint, which will be a yearly print anthology selected from the pages of our online journal. If your work is accepted into the online journal, it will also have the chance to be printed in the Imprint for that year. The 2019 version will appear in Spring or Summer 2021 as a 6 x 9 paperback via Amazon.

Pending payment, all submissions will receive a response shortly after our submission deadline. 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.

If your work is selected we request the right to publish it in both the e-book and blog-style versions of Synkroniciti Magazine. We accept simultaneous submissions and pre-published work (contingent upon the other parties involved allowing publication). If it is later selected for Imprint, we will contact you at that time to ask for the right to publish it again. All other rights remain your own.

 

Thank you!!
