Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Lighthouse Weekly acts as a harbor and a slicing white knife of light through the black night of creative darkness for high-quality, sea-salted, and landlocked narratives. We want to illuminate luminous narratives, the diverse biospheres, zones, deep-sea algae, and glow of strange, wonderful stories. Through a weekly response time, weekly posts, and an open heart to all genres, forms, styles, biographies, and backgrounds, we're a carefully cultivated shelter and digital showcase for some of the best and most beautiful fiction and poetry that creative writing has to offer.

Submissions Policy
Submissions are always open, but the deadline for each week is Sunday evening. Accepted content from the previous week will be posted every following Monday-Friday (depending on if we need more information from writers: biographies, etc.). Submissions are solely accepted through Submittable. Fiction, Poetry, Creative Nonfiction, Flash Fiction, Artwork, & Micro Fiction Submissions Only. Fiction - 10,000 word limit, any file format, font, genre, and style. Poetry - 5 Poems, any file format, font, genre, and style. Creative Nonfiction - 10,000 word limit, any file format, font, genre, and style. Flash Fiction - 1,000 word limit, any file format, font, genre, and style. Micro Fiction - 500 word limit, any file format, font, genre, and style. Artwork - 5 images, JPEG or PNG, any style. Fast Author Responses Some magazines take six months to a year to respond to their writers (in most cases, quite understandably; staffing, university bureaucracy, giving each submission the time it deserves), but we believe we can respond within one week.​ * Include a cover letter, third-person biography, and social media titles with your work, or include them in your acceptance confirmation. If you don't include a biography or social media, we will likely post your content without them. As a rapid-turnaround creative content hub, we can't wait for email back and forths. The ship must sail!
