There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions for WORDPEACE, a semi-annual online journal of literary response to world events are open October 1 - November 30, 2020. The following submission period is March 1 - April 30, 2021. 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We are looking for previously unpublished poems, stories, creative non-fiction essays, personal essays, visual art, reviews and interviews that reflect or are in conversation with world events.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.
