Guidelines

Hello! Thank you for considering Vineyard Literary. We are a new online journal looking for fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and visual art. Though we mostly publish literary fiction, we also love magical realism, absurdist writing, and surrealist writing. We publish three online issues per year as well as one print anthology. Here are our submission guidelines:

-Please send us one piece of prose between 50 – 5,000 words. If you are submitting flash (50-750 words), you may send up to three pieces in one document.

-Any font and font size is fine! Just please don’t use one that is difficult to read (ex. Curlz, Chiller, etc.).

-Any spacing or margin size is fine, as well.

-Please send a .doc or .docx file type.

-Simultaneous submissions are great! Just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. Please no previously published works.
