Should it be published elsewhere (whether in another publication or on your own website), please credit Fahmidan as its first publication.

  • Additional info

    Feedback Options: Writers have the option to pay staff Readers and Editors for their feedback. Prices can be found on our Submittable submission pages for both poetry, and all forms of prose. For reader feedback on both prose and poetry, writers will receive a paragraph of commentary on up to three poems. Feedback may include, but is not limited to; narrative, structure, device usage and readability as well as feedback on grammatical and syntax improvements. This feedback will be focused on areas of improvement whilst highlighting the pieces’ strengths. For Editorial Feedback writers can expect line comments as well as a 3-paragraph full document markup on 3, 6 or 9 poems. At Fahmidan we have always valued transparency and that is no different today than it was when we started in July 2020. The majority of all feedback fees goes to the staff reader/editor reviewing and commenting on your writing. Submittable takes a fee (learn more about Submittable fees) and we keep what is left to pay staff, maintain the journal and cover any expenses.
