Does It Have Pockets: General Submissions (Paying Market)

A new paying market, Does It Have Pockets, seeks poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction submissions that may not be easy to categorize. We welcome your fictional instruction manuals, your list poems, your genre experimentations and your structural twists. For more details about submissions (yes, reprints are considered!) check out our submissions page:

About the Journal

Does It Have Pockets is an online literary magazine with a particular emphasis on the uncatagorizable. Literary science fiction? Fantasy memoir? A memoir as instruction manual? Fiction as recipe? If you’ve ever been told, “I love this, but I don’t know where to put it,” try our submissions box.


A note on our name: A question the editor asked herself over many years developed into a metaphor about what we are allowed to carry into our lives and our stories. We’re not the kind of place where pockets are sewn shut for a good silhouette. We welcome your pockets: large, small, messy, empty or frayed.
