Prose & Poetry Literary Markets

Matter Press Calls for Compressed Literary Works of Prose and Poetry – Pays $50/submission

The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts has opened its reading period to accept submissions of concisely-written poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction.

The purpose of the Journal is to publish “compressed” literary works, namely flash fiction, micro fiction, verse and compressed poetry, and other neatly-packaged forms of expression.

Word counts:

  • Fiction: up to 600 words
  • Creative Non-Fiction: up to 600 words
  • Poetry: up to 20 lines or 75 words

The editor encourages new writers to submit compressed writing for the Journal’s newest category called triptychs–a three-column piece of writing with the main story or poem in the middle enclosed by two columns of supportive information.

Payment: Matter Press, the publisher, pays $50/piece.

New works are published online each week.

Reading period closes September 15, 2017.

Read updated submission guidelines at the publication’s Submittable page.
