Here's a list of literary magazines that are open for submissions this week. If you like using this resource, we encourage you to listen to our podcast where we talk about what we've been reading and give book recommendations to our listeners.

Meet Me @ 19th Street


Meet Me @ 19th Street is a division of Arch Street Press, a nonprofit, independent book publisher based in Philadelphia. The imprint is looking for submissions from authors whose first chapter of their book relates to the theme of transitions. See the prompt below.


"These days, it feels as though the world is in transition. From the autumnal evolution of leaves to the frequent fluctuations of news and information, change is in the air. For Meet Me @ 19th Street’s fourth quarter competition, we invite you to submit the first chapter of a novel grounded in transition or evolution, the subtlest shifts or the most colossal of transformations."


Submissions are open until December 31. Each of three winners will receive $100, publication in our online literary journal, and consideration for the annual Arch Street Prize, which includes $1000, professional editing of the manuscript, a book contract, and publication by Arch Street Press.
