Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry submissions via Submittable and snail mail during our open calls.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.

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.
