Send us your favorite short fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, visual art and photography for our upcoming Spring issue to be published in March 2024. We seek fresh content that stokes the senses and resonates with our readers. See our website for past issues.
No theme. No fee to submit.
For review, we’ll take one fiction (3,500 words), one CNF (3,500 words), three poems (50 lines max each), and six visual art and photography images (300 DPI minimum). We accept simultaneous submissions as well as multiple submissions per year and for different genres. Visit our Submittable page for more details.
We aim to support the entire writing community but like to shine a spotlight on new artists who unleash their imagination and cultivate innovative and emotionally-intelligent storytelling. Each issue has numerous authors and artists being published for the very first time. Here at Cool Beans Lit, we enjoy writing and art that moves us. We welcome any mix of genres, cultures and media. Our editorial focus is smart yet unpretentious, relevant and exciting. Show us what you’ve got! Let’s get you published.
