submissions that disregard guidelines will be disregarded
Magazine submissions are open and free in the months of January and August. For longer manuscripts, please read the following with care:
Submission fees are a divisive issue and a barrier for many writers. For this reason, we offer a free route via the magazine, publication in which qualifies you to send manuscripts for free. If you wish to take a quicker route, in lieu of a 'Tip Jar' submission, we request that you purchase a HVTN product; this shows to us a willingness to engage with the press and the work we publish. You receive something for your money, and it helps support our fledgling endeavour. Thank you for reading and understanding, and please know we are open to feedback on this policy. If you take the Tip Jar route, please include a PayPal reference number in your submission.
Magazine: January and August.
Poetry Collections: Open
Poetry Chapbooks: Open
Short Story Collections: Open
Theory Proposals: Open
We regret that we cannot afford to pay contributors to the magazine, but you will receive a free copy and we will be the biggest advocates for your writing on our social media.
Authors of pamphlets and collections receive 10% of any given print run by way of author copy, and 50% of any profits after the print costs have been made back.
Submissions of poetry, short fiction, theory, and artwork are welcome. Please be happy with how your work will look in A5, and as a word doc. or PDF. Please send no more than 6 poems or 3000 words. For artwork, please send each image as a separate attachment in one email.
Please send an entire manuscript as a word doc. or PDF in black and white at a maximum of 120 A5 pages. We request that potential submitters purchase a copy of a full length HVTN book. If you are enduring financial hardship and/or have been in HVTN Magazine, you are exempt from this. In case of the former, please drop us a note before sending the manuscript, to let us know your circumstances.
Please send an entire manuscript (limit of 30 A5 pages). We request that you purchase a HVTN product (either an issue of HVTN Magazine, or a book) before submitting. The same exemption criteria as for Books is in place, but similarly please email ahead as a courtesy.
