Door is a Jar Magazine is looking for well-crafted poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama and artwork for the Fall issue of its bi-annual online and print publication. Door is a Jar steers away from academic writing, and publishes short, conversational works that use familiar language. The magazine features new artists and writers and works that are accessible for all readers. Works that are confusing, abstract, or unnecessarily fancy will not be considered. Our entry guards stand firm against academic jigsaw puzzles.
The submission period for the Fall issue opens April 2, 2016 and will close October 1, 2016. Full submission guidelines here.
