Posit publishes three issues per year of finely crafted contemporary literary and visual art. We are looking for innovation, aesthetic vision, and accomplished craftsmanship. Our tastes are non-sectarian, with an interest in the experimental.

Posit considers submissions between September 15 and April 15, via Submittable only. No email submissions, please. Due to the large number of excellent submissions we receive, we are now reading for publication in 2020. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Also, we will consider only one submission from any author or artist at a time — please do not simultaneously submit work to us in more than one category.

Posit considers only unpublished written work, and acquires first-time North American rights upon publication. Thereafter, all rights revert to the author, and the work may be reprinted as long as appropriate acknowledgement to Posit is made. No such restrictions apply to visual art submissions.

  • Poetry: 3-6 poems, no line limits, but no epics, please.
  • Fiction and hybrids: 1000 words or less.
  • Visual Art: Please submit six to twelve jpeg images, an inventory list, an artist’s statement and a one-paragraph bio.
  • Film and animation: no longer than 3 minutes, please.
