iō, an annually published literary journal that launched in 2018, is now accepting submissions, and we invite you to submit their writing and artwork for our 2nd open-accessed ebook.
Since iō is an emerging journal open to artistic liberty, we can be a place for your members to explore their creativity in ways they may not be able to in other literary journals.
For a detailed outline of our submission guidelines, as well as our submission page, please visit here. Submissions accepted until April 14.
About the Journal
iō was founded by three women of color with the mission to showcase a myriad of experiences of all people, especially those in underrepresented groups whose voices are silenced or unheard in mainstream culture.
We offer writers an opportunity to submit pieces such as (but not limited to!) fiction and nonfiction, poetry, screenplays, book reviews, literary criticism, flash- & micro- fiction/non-fiction, narrative essays, as well as 2-D art, comics, and photography.
In our effort to embrace all forms of creative writing and artistic expression, iō accepts experimental works, which include pieces that do not adhere to traditional labels or genres but have a story to share. We are open to your students’ interpretations of what they deem “experimental.”
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, and authors may submit to any and all categories.
