Writing Re-Enlightenment

A Sprinkling of Lit Journals That Take Electronic Submissions: A – B

Posted in Uncategorized by Caralyn Davis on December 9, 2011

In the three years that I’ve been submitting to literary journals with some consistency, I’ve collected a number of journal websites. Since many writers now prefer to submit electronically, I thought I’d share some journals that accept electronic submissions. While more journals are making the jump every year, there are still enough that don’t to make a list worthwhile I think.

This list is non-comprehensive, just what I’ve cobbled together, but it may give you a starting point to look for places to submit your work if you are an electronic-only writer. (It also might help you find journals to subscribe to — I don’t subscribe to every journal I submit to, but I do subscribe to a number, as well as reading at the websites of many online journals.)

You’ll note that a lot of journals use Submishmash. The positive about that is that once you have entered your information into the Submishmash system, you use that information with every Submishmash journal so you don’t have to re-enter your contact information again and again. The fees and submission periods I’ve included relate to fiction and creative nonfiction; fees especially are subject to change as more journals are adding nominal charges. I’ve started with journals whose names begin with an A or B:
