*** Submissions open and close on a rolling issue-by-issue basis. Check your individual category of fiction, poetry, scripts or creative non-fiction for its current status. If you can't find that category, submissions are currently closed and you should come back later. ***

We are seeking fiction, poetry, scripts and creative non-fiction for our e-book literary journal. Please provide a short single-paragraph bio with your work and read the category guidelines carefully along with the general guidelines at our website: http://tincture-journal.com/submissions/.

We pay our writers and journal sales are our only source of funding, so please consider purchasing at least one prior issue to support your fellow writers and get a feeling for what we have published previously: http://tincture-journal.com/buy-a-tincture/.

All submitters will be added to our mailing list so you can hear the latest news from Tincture HQ. If you'd prefer not to be on this low-volume list you can easily unsubscribe.

Tincture Journal is seeking fresh new fiction for Issue Twenty(December 2017). Stories may be anything from 100 to 20,000 words, although anything above 10,000 needs to work hard to justify its length.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know, and withdraw immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere (with our congratulations!)

All submissions should be in Word or Open Office formats, 12 point variable-width font, 1.5 or double spaced. No fixed-width fonts (eg: Courier). Please provide a short bio for publication.

Published writers will be paid, please refer to our general guidelines and the website for more detail.

Tincture Journal is seeking short scripts of plays or screenplays that stand on their own as text. We think this is something that literary journals should do more of, but it can be difficult to find scripts that also make for pleasurable reading.

Your script must be engaging as pure text and we recommend no more than 20 pages. Shorter tends to work better in this category. Please use a formatting that is relevant for your script, but keep in mind that we will not use standard screenplay formatting in the ebook and are allergic to fixed width fonts (such as Courier).

Tincture Journal is seeking creative non-fiction on any topic for Issue Twenty (December 2017). Please note that we are only seeking non-fiction written in a narrative style, using literary techniques, rather than straightforward articles or essays.

Your piece can be anything in the range of 100 to 20,000 words, but anything over 10,000 needs to work hard to justify its length. Be creative and send anything that you think might interest us and our readers. You can also use this submission category to submit non-fiction pitches, or email those directly to editor@tincture-journal.com (pitch only, no attachments).

Ends on July 13, 2017

Tincture Journal is seeking poetry for Issue Nineteen (September 2017). Submissions will be open from 13 Jun - 13 Jul.

There is no word-limit for poetry, but please submit no more than five poems, in a single document. Please provide a short bio and optionally include a synopsis for each poem (these are occasionally helpful and we'll discuss with you if we think it could be published alongside the poem, but it's not required). Please note that some formatting might prove challenging in our e-book, particularly with small screens and/or large font sizes, but we will let you know if that poses any problems and do our best to make it work.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know, and withdraw immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere (with our congratulations!)

In the interests of diversity, please note that we are highly unlikely to publish your poetry in two consecutive issues, so please leave a gap before sending us more work if you have already appeared in our current issue.

All submissions should be in Word or Open Office formats, 12 point font.

Published writers will be paid from $30-$50.
