Posit publishes three online 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. We’re committed to supporting the work of writers and artists of all ages, races, gender identifications, and sexual orientations.

Posit considers submissions via Submittable only. No email submissions, please. Please check our Submittable page for open reading periods.

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. Additional submissions by the same author will be returned unread.

Posit considers only unpublished poetry and prose, and acquires first-time North American rights upon publication.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: 5-6 poems, no line limits, but no epics, please.
  • Fiction and hybrids: 1-3 pieces, 1000 words or less.
  • Visual Art: Please submit 9-15 jpeg images, an inventory list, an artist’s statement and a one-paragraph bio, formatted as specified on our Submittable page.
  • Film and animation: no longer than 3 minutes, please.
