Fiction - 4200 words max

Max words: 4200

Max pieces: 1

Sub Genres: Literary

First, our goal: To publish stories non-writers would actually want to read. We prefer funny, weird, and, above all, entertaining; sober melodramas generally don’t fly so well with us. There are certainly exceptions, but that’s largely because they’re exceptional.

Fiction - 1000 words max

Max words: 1000

Sub Genres: Literary


Max lines: 100

Submit up to 100 lines* of poetry (excluding titles and spaces) in a single file. It can be one long poem or several short poems, as long as the total line count is 100 or less. Bonus hint: we love haiku and all speculative derivatives (scifaiku, horrorku, etc.), especially when they follow Michael Dylan Welch’s tips for writing haiku in English

How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    No cover letter advice

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    We don't have formatting requirements for this magazine

  • Author's rights

    And now, because the founding editor was an incredibly cynical man: Jersey Devil Press accepts no liability arising from the publication of an author’s work. Authors retain copyright on all works. We request one-time electronic rights and, possibly, print rights. We’ll let you know about that last part. Work published in an online issue will be archived indefinitely. Submission to Jersey Devil Press constitutes acceptance of these conditions.

  • Additional info

    We’re also down with reprints, especially if the story has only appeared in print before. Just make sure to tell us it’s a reprint and where and when it previously appeared. We don’t accept stories that are currently available online elsewhere. If it’s already up on one site, it seems a bit greedy to us to have it on ours too.
