Pilgrimage Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

UPDATE: We are making good progress on our "Edges and Borders" issue, and we should be sharing the proof with contributors soon. We are now open for submissions for the next issue! 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Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry submissions via Submittable and snail mail during our open calls.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.
