There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for visiting WORDPEACE. Here are the current calls and guidelines:
We are currently OPEN for both general submissions and submissions to our special Ukraine-themed multi-genre feature section of the spring/summer 2022 issue. General submissions that have already come in will be considered for the themed section if they are applicable. Submission periods for WORDPEACE, a semi-annual online journal of literary response to world events are February 1 - April 1 and October 1 - November 30. Poetry, short fiction, non-fiction essays and visual art are welcome. The journal is published twice yearly at wordpeace.co, usually in July and February. We are also open to hybrid forms. If you are submitting a piece of writing with art that goes with it, please submit the entire thing in one category, or you may get a rejection on one part and an acceptance on the other (if that's okay, go ahead and submit separately). 

General Submission Guidelines:

We are looking for previously unpublished poems, stories, creative non-fiction essays, personal essays, visual art, hybrid work, reviews and interviews that reflect or are in conversation with world events. We want work which asks for positive change, critiques the status quo, is forward thinking, and takes a stand in the face of corruption and greed, brutality, xenophobia, homophobia, prejudice, genocide and oligarchy.
