For non-fiction, we are looking for lyric, evergreen essays or hybrid works rather than journalism or opinion pieces — think: the kind of writing that will last for years on a shelf.

Poetry

Max pieces: 3

And for poetry, we’re looking for both fresh and established voices, for poems that engage both the mind and heart. We consider poetry of all length, but prefer poems that don’t exceed two pages.

Astra’s website runs one book review per week. We review the kind of books that fit with the magazine’s ethos: style-forward, international literature: novels, stories, poetry, essays originally written in English and in translation. Please familiarize yourself with Astra’s book review section for style, length and form, before pitching.

Translation

Max words: 7000

Max pieces: 2

Translated work should be previously unpublished in English, and accompanied by the original text (the translator should also have permission from the rights holder of the original text).
