*** 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. ***

We are seeking fiction, poetry, scripts and creative non-fiction for our e-book literary journal. If your submission category is not currently open, please come back later. We can only consider previously unpublished work. Please provide a short single-paragraph bio with your work.

Please purchase 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/.

Nice hint: Submissions from our readers are given extra special attention :)

Translation: Submitting work to a publication you haven't read is disrespectful!

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, it's very easy to unsubscribe.

Tincture Journal is seeking fresh new short stories for Issue Nineteen (September 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.

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

Published writers will be paid.

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.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know.

All submissions should be in Word or Open Office formats, 12 point font, 1.5 or double spaced. Please provide a bio.

Published writers will be paid.

Tincture Journal is seeking creative non-fiction on any topic for Issue Nineteen (September 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, particularly for the creative non-fiction category. Non-fiction can take any form you like. Be creative and send anything that 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).

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know.

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

Ends on April 13, 2017

Tincture Journal is seeking poetry for Issue Eighteen (June 2017). Submissions will be open from Mar 13 - Apr 13.

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).

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, just let us know immediately if you need to withdraw your submission.

All submissions should be in Word or Open Office formats, 12 point font. Some formatting can be difficult in our reflowable e-book format, but we'll let you know if that poses any problems and we'll do our best to make it work.

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