Atlas and Alice
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
What We're Looking For
Generally, Atlas and Alice is a magazine interested in intersections. Chief among them are the meetings-up of science and the arts, prose and poetry, and any piece that seems to do more than one thing at once. Your intersections don't have to be radical--although we like radical. Reinvent your own idea of the intersection. And then share it with us.
Rights: Atlas and Alice acquires first serial rights, but those rights revert back to you, the artist, upon publication. We kindly ask for acknowledgment for subsequent reprints of your work.
Payment: Atlas and Alice does not offer payment to contributors. Because we keep submissions free and do not run ads on our site, we do not bring in any money (like most journals, A+A is a labor of love). Occasionally, we receive money from donors to use for small honorariums, and if so, we will make note of this change in our call for submissions.
Boring, Mechanical Stuff
Read, edit, re-read, and re-edit your work. No changes will be allowed after a piece has been submitted.
We don't accept previously published work, but we do accept simultaneous submissions. In fact, we encourage them. We understand it's a writer-eat-writer world out there. Just be sure to notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. Given the chance, we'll mix a tasty cocktail in your honor.
Cover letters: We all hate writing them, don't we? So consider them unnecessary. All we want from you is a short bio and your contact email. If you have something interesting to say, want to mention a piece we published that you like, or how you found out about the magazine, by all means do. If you're just including the same old "My work has been published or is forthcoming from..." then, we encourage you not to write a cover letter.
Multiple Submissions: Please hit us up in just one genre per submission period (unless we ask specifically to see more work).
All submissions must arrive through this submissions manager (Submittable). For partial withdrawals, please contact us through Submittable message/note (all of our editors can immediately see these when reading submissions).
Thanks. We look forward to hearing from you!
