We are now open for submissions of fiction and poetry both for next summer’s print issue and for our soon to be re-launched online fiction and poetry section. The deadline is midnight on December 31st.

Stories can be anywhere between 500 & 7000 words in length.

Please send a maximum of three poems.

Your work will be considered for both the print and online sections. If you would rather only be considered for the print section please stipulate this in your email.

Please send in word files rather than pdfs, accompanied by a short bio.

Contributors to Issue Thirteen are ineligible for Issue Fourteen, however you are welcome to submit work for our online series.

Publication in our print journal comes with a copy of the book, plus a back issue of your choosing. Publication online comes with a back issue of your choosing.

It is highly recommended that you read a print edition of The Lonely Crowd before submitting work to us.
