Ligeia is currently closed for submissions.
Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment (doc, docx, rtf, txt, or jpg). Simultaneous submissions are permitted. Let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work. Please limit your submissions to 1 per category (or multiple poems within one document). Include a 50-word third-person bio in the body of the email.
Use the following as an email subject line template:
Category - Author Name
example: Fiction - Jane Doe
Fiction: send fiction up to 2,000 words as an attachment. We have a preference for literary and slipstream, but are open to more traditional science fiction and horror.
Poetry: send 1-5 poems together in a single document. We're looking for descriptive, immersive works—with a touch of strange to them.
Nonfiction: send nonfiction up to 2000 words as an attachment. We accept creative nonfiction and reviews.
Art: please send art as a jpg or png.
Ligeia acquires first electronic rights and the non-exclusive right to include your work in our archives. Upon publication, rights revert to the author. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay contributors at this time. In the future, if your work appears in other publications, we ask that you credit Ligeia as the original publisher. Thank you for your interest in Ligeia. We look forward to reading your work.
