How to submit

  • Processs

    Submittable

  • Cover letter

    We love a good cover and bio - AND we truly focus on the work. Meaning, we read covers/bios after we review your work.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Acceptable file types: pdf, .doc, .docx, .txt, .rtf, .wpf, .odt, .wpd, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif

  • Author's rights

    We hold first serial rights for the material we publish, the copyright reverts back to the author upon publication. deLuge reserves the right to publish individual pieces first published in the online magazine, in an anthology format in the future.

  • Additional info

    While we do need to charge a little for submissions (we use the submission fees to cover costs for website and submittable), we do not like to - so we offer free reading periods several times a year. This is an absolute labor of love for us. We are a two person team (meaning we do everything from being the readers to designing the journal to maintaining the website) unaffliated with anyone but ourselves - which is one of the reasons why we started the journal. It is that personal to us. We are so, so excited to see your work.
