Soliloquies Anthology is looking for vibrant, unpublished poetry and prose in English by emerging and established authors. We want smart, confident work, from a variety of locations, backgrounds, perspectives and schools.

Send us work that is polished, but not necessarily safe or perfect.

Submission Guidelines

  • Poetry (up to four poems; max. 5 pages)
  • Fiction (up to two pieces; max. 3500 words)
  • Creative Non-Fiction (up to two pieces; max. 3500 words)

Poetry and prose submissions may include multiple pieces within the maximum page count or word count outlined above. Each new piece must begin on a new page, and must be clearly titled. Authors may submit to all three genres, though each submission must be completed separately. 

While we allow simultaneous submissions, authors must notify us immediately if their work is accepted elsewhere. Soliloquies Anthology retains First North American Serial Rights, and the right to reproduce any work in our print publication online. Rights revert to authors after publication.

Note that when the journal is produced, writing is formatted within a 4.5 by 7 inch space. Please consider how these parameters will affect the presentation of the work you are submitting. Due to the short window between our deadline and printing date, formatting may be done by the design team, without the author’s consultation.
