UPDATE: We will be opening general submissions soon as we continue to catch up. We are already open for  artwork and translation submissions. Thank you for your patience as work through these pandemic delays.

Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry submissions via Submittable and snail mail during our open calls. We generally feature one artist per issue with full color artwork on the covers and black and white artwork in the magazine's interior. Send what you think might fit, regardless of whether or not it matches an upcoming themed issue. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine, provided you notify us if the work is accepted elsewhere. Our response time is approximately 8-12 weeks after the closing of an issue’s theme. Each prose submission should have a 6000 word limit. Please send up to six poems per submission.

For snail mail submissions, please include an SASE for reply only. Unused manuscripts will be recycled.

To be considered for publication in our Translation Folio, please submit the following, with the original versions and the translations:

·      Up to six poems

·      Prose pieces of up to 5000 words

·      OR, a combination of prose and poetry totaling 5000 words.

We encourage translations connect to the theme of the issue for which they are being submitted. If your translations are accepted for publication, we may ask you for an introductory essay of up to 1500 words, to contextualize the original(s) and highlight the importance of translating these texts into English.

Pilgrimage considers art submissions throughout the year. Please use Submittable to send print-ready images in high-resolution 300 DPI format with B&W print conversion in mind, if your images are in color. Each issue of Pilgrimage generally features a single artist's full color work on the front and back covers with additional interior B&W images. We prefer to have 6-8 images to consider, but you can submit with links to your work. We understand that many artists store images of their work on websites, and we are happy to consider your work from those links. Keep our upcoming themes in mind when you submit.
