A Literation is officially launched and submissions are open. Please note our website is not live yet, but we’ll be bringing it online within the next few days. We appreciate your patience. Please read the Submission Guidelines before submitting. The themes for the inaugural issue are detailed below. Please direct any questions you may have to email@example.com.

Thanks, and we look forward to reading your work!
Editor-in-Chief, A Literation
Poetry (submit to firstname.lastname@example.org): “An Encounter With …”
Specifically, we are seeking the submission of poems describing unusual or provocative encounters. We encourage poets to avoid taking the theme too literally; we are interested in seeing submissions that describe encounters with the vague, the unknown, the obscure, the WEIRD, in lieu of poems about encounters with people, places or things.
Prose (submit to email@example.com): “Transitions”
What does it take to change a life? For this theme we are looking for stories of dramatic change: transitions, transformations, and new perspectives. Pieces could be about anything from a discovery that changes a character’s life (or changes the world!) to a story of a character who is transformed into a tern while lying on the beach. We are generally looking for a major transition, but we would certainly be delighted by unexpected transformations, or new, creative interpretations.
Visual Art (submit to firstname.lastname@example.org):
Your original art related to either or both themes.
We are accepting submissions of visual art to use as breaks in the magazine, as well as a piece for the cover. These pieces will be reviewed and selected by the entire team. The standard size of an eBook cover or page is 600 x 800 pixels. Please include your name and tumblr URL with your attached artwork, along with a short paragraph describing how your art interprets the theme(s) presented.
Submission Terms and Conditions (please read before submitting):
Some amazing writers from the Tumblr community have launched a lit journal. Here’s how to get involved!
