Assisi: An Online Journal of Arts & Letters

Type Of Organization

Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Assisi’s mission is, first and foremost, to publish works of literature and art that are thoughtful, engaging, and well written/composed. We look for work that examines the human condition, that helps the reader view things from a slightly different angle, and that provokes an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world. Assisi is guided by the Franciscan values of spirituality, morality, social responsibility, and love for the Earth and her people, even when the writing is overtly “not Catholic” in nature.

Submissions Policy
Assisi currently accepts submissions on a rolling basis. All submissions must be done through our Submittable site: PLEASE NOTE: Accepted work WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED IMMEDIATELY. We publish either two issues a year – Fall, which appears in December, and Spring, which appears in June – or a Fall/Spring Double issue in June. Every effort is made to read submissions in a timely manner but it may take up to 8 months for you to receive a response. Because we do allow simultaneous submissions, you may submit your work to other journals as well as to Assisi. Submissions must be concealed. No identifying information may appear on the submission itself. There is a limit of 1 submission in each genre per person within any 6-month time period. Please see our Submittable site for further details. We generally do not reprint previously published work, although occasional exceptions may be made to this policy for editorial purposes. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as they are indicated as such and Assisi is notified immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. Assisi holds first rights for publication; we also reserve the right to use your name and the title of your work in press releases and on our social media pages. Beyond this use, and following publication in Assisi, rights revert to the author/artist providing Assisi is acknowledged in any subsequent publication of the work.
