Submissions for Fiction are open until 28/02/19.

Fiction / The word limit can be anywhere between five hundred and five thousand words on any theme of your choosing.

Please send your work (accompanied by a short biography) to Please send your work as a Word document.


Submissions for Poetry are currently closed.

Poetry / Ideally we would like to publish three poems by each poet featured in the print issue and so it would be most suitable to send three to four poems for our consideration. If sending particularly long poems, on the other hand, please restrict your submission to one piece.

Contributors to the print issue all receive a complimentary copy of the anthology as well as a year’s subscription (3 issues plus p&p) to The Lonely Crowd. Unfortunately we are unable to pay for work featured on the website.

Work must be previously unpublished. Please state if you are submitting your work simultaneously. Likewise please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

We will aim to respond within four months.


We highly recommend reading a copy of The Lonely Crowd before submitting to the magazine. You can purchase The Lonely Crowd here.
