    Lodestone Journal is a literary journal interested in publishing short fiction, poetry, literary nonfiction, and visual art. It published its first issue in 2014, and is preparing to publish its third issue in late July / early August of 2017. Our long-term goal is to publish high quality literature, bi-annually, in collaboration with artists of all types to encourage greater interest in literature and writing.

  • Submissions policy
    We review up to five submissions from a single author at any one time. Submissions are rolling and may be simultaneous. There is no fee for submissions, though there is a fee for contest entries. Because we are volunteer-run, we cannot guarantee review times, but generally try to respond within three months. If published elsewhere, we will not publish a piece.
