Important stuff

Our publication rates as of Spring 2022 are: $100 per traditional interview, (one interviewer, one or two interviewees); $150 per roundtable interview (one interviewer, three or more interviewees): $150 per collaborative piece (collaborative reviews, creative pieces, etc, $75 per collaborator), $200 per essay, $100 per review, $150 per work of fiction, $35 per poem (or page, capped at $80 for poems running four pages or more), and $30 to $150 per hybrid/experimental piece, according to length, medium, and number of collaborators. Check back with the magazine regularly; The Puritan is working ever assiduously to increase these figures.




Max words: 10000Max pieces: 1Length is up to you, but a story over 10,000 words will only be considered if it is of exceptional quality (and nothing over 12,000 words, please). Only send one story at a time, unless you are writing flash fiction (or stories under 500 words), in which case you can send up to three.


Max words: 5000Max pieces: 1Please include a succinct description of no more than 250 words in the Cover Letter field, along with a full working draft of your essay as a Word doc. The essays should compel us with daring ideas and urgent, captivating writing. We are especially interested in work by LGBTQ2S+ writers, BIPOC writers, and writing from other marginalized folks.


Max pieces: 4

We welcome a wide range of forms such as traditional one-on-one conversations, roundtable discussions, narrative thought-pieces, critical engagements with a text, creative exchanges (visual, literary, etc), and more. We’d like you to surprise us. If you look at our archives, you’ll get a sense of the range and depth we are looking for—though we are always looking for new and fresh approaches. We are open to seeing finished pieces, or hearing ideas. Get at us. To pitch a specific interview or conversation, please contact Interviews Editor Poonam Dhir at puritan.magazine.interviews@gmail.com.
