General submissions for the swamp pink will close December 31!
Formerly known as Crazyhorse, swamp pink publishes fiction, poetry, and nonfiction on a semi-monthly basis.
Our aim is to continue publishing exceptional work from writers at all stages of their careers. We are particularly interested in submissions from writers of color and writers from marginalized and underrepresented communities. And yes, we pay our contributors.
Poems receive $40 each, and we pay $0.05 a word for prose. Maximum payout for accepted work is $200.
Submissions of fiction and nonfiction can be up to 7,500 words in length. We have published exceptional work that falls outside this range, but it is an unusual occurrence.
