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 via Submittable only. No email submissions, please. We remain open to visual art submissions year-round, but are currently closed to poetry and prose until September 15, 2019, when we will be reading for our 2020 issues. 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Posit considers only unpublished written work, and acquires first-time North American rights upon publication.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: 4-6 poems, no line limits, but no epics, please.
  • Fiction and hybrids: 1000 words or less.
  • Visual Art: Please submit twelve 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.
