GUIDELINES + SUBMISSION INFORMATION

read through our guidelines and send us your work to submissions@moonflakepress.com


While we welcome everyone’s work, we do have set themes for each issue. We announce them on social media as well as on here. You don’t need to be so literal but please don’t send us work that has no correlation whatsoever. That being said, as long as your work checks the following boxes, we can’t wait to read it!

- Please send one email per genre. For example, send one email with a poetry submission and a SEPERATE one with fiction.

- Submissions which don't stick to the guidelines will not be opened or answered.
