Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Horned Things welcomes submissions from people of all backgrounds, sexual orientations, genders, etc. We aim to create extended submission periods for marginalized writers and artists. We do not show preference to readers based on previous publishing history or connections. Rather, we care more about the quality of work and the topic of focus in said work. Read more about the goals of Horned Things on our About page.

Submissions Policy
Currently we accept submission via email only at [email protected] With submissions, we ask that artists/ writers be sure to include a third-person bio that is no less than 50 words and no more than 150 words. Cover letter is optional but preferred. Simultaneous submissions are allowed but we ask that writers/ artists let us know immediately should a piece be accepted elsewhere. Unfortunately, Horned Things is not a paying market. We ask that those submitting please only submit once per year per category unless invited to submit again immediately. Estimated wait time to hear back from us is about one month. However, if a month has passed since a writer/ artist has sent a submission and they have not yet heard back from us, they are invited to email us and inquire about the status of their piece.
