Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Minyan is an online quarterly literary magazine. Our mission is to publish the finest poetry and flash fiction by Jewish writers and their allies. The magazine's name, Minyan, refers to a group of ten adults needed for a worship service in Judaism. Each issue of Minyan will contain the work from ten writers. Our first issue will launch just in time for Chanukah 2021.

Submissions Policy
Minyan publishes poetry and flash fiction written by Jews and their allies alongside one another. Although we like work with a Jewish theme, we also enjoy work with secular themes. Unsolicited manuscripts of three to five previously unpublished poems or up to three flash fiction stories are welcome year-round. Simultaneous submissions are allowed. However, confirmation of acceptance is regarded as a commitment to publication, and it is expected that the manuscript will not be later withdrawn for placement with another publication. Also, should we accept your work, and it has been submitted to other journals, you are expected to notify those journals of your acceptance. Rights revert to the author immediately upon publication in Minyan. However, should your work be republished, please credit Minyan as first publishing the work. Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to provide a payment of accepted work at this time. Poetry Submissions Please make sure that your email contains only one Word document or .pdf with your 3-5 poems. Please include your short bio in the body of the email, and put "POETRY SUBMISSION" in the subject line of your email. Flash Fiction Submissions Once a year, we plan on publishing an issue devoted to prose poems and flash fiction. For flash fiction submissions, please make sure that your email contains only one Word document or .pdf containing no more than 3 flash fiction stories. Each story should be no more than 500 words. Please include your short bio in the body of the email, and put "FLASH FICTION SUBMISSION" in the subject line of your email. Themes for Upcoming Issues Issue 1 will include poetry submissions on any theme. Issue 2 will include poetry submissions on any theme. Issue 3 will include prose poems and microfiction on any theme. Issue 4 will include political poems and will go live in October 2022 before the midterm elections. Ready to submit? If you've read the guidelines and are ready to submit your work, please send your submission to minyanmag at gmail dot com. Thank you for interest in Minyan. We look forward to reading your work!
