PFN – Call for Submissions to Anomaly Journal

March 31 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


**ANNOUNCEMENT: Fees will be waived for all Black and Indigenous writers to support those most targeted by state violence. Email editor [at] anomalouspress [dot] org to request a fee waiver.

To cover operational costs, we must charge a $3 fee for each submission. If, for reasons of financial hardship, you cannot afford to pay the submission fee or if this fee is a barrier, please send us an email at editor at anomalouspress dot org.

We strongly encourage you to take a look at to see previous issues and see if you think your work is a good fit.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but we ask that you notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. You can use this handy system to withdraw, or leave a note on your submission.

We only consider previously unpublished work. That includes work published on personal blogs, sorry. We’re especially interested in work that uses the medium of the web as part of its compositional strategy.

We aim for a three-month response time, but we’re only human. Because we’re an all-volunteer organization we try our very best to offer a fair turnaround time, about four months. For any genre other than poetry please drop us a line if you haven’t heard from us within three months. For poetry submissions, we can’t respond to individual inquiries: if you haven’t heard from us yet, it’s because we’re still working on your submission. We get over 1000 poetry submissions every period and are spending time reading each one carefully.


Anomaly is currently seeking impact poetry. We are seeking poems that challenge the history and currents of the English language, poems that unsettle cultural norms, poems that utilize language to contest and remake the world. We seek poems that confront gender formations, white supremacy, class, body, possibility. We are seeking for poetry rooted in the radical imagination. We hope to find you.

Please be aware that we get over 500 submissions per reading period and read each carefully, so if you’re work has not been accepted or rejected it’s not from oversight-we promise we’re working on it!

Attach up to five poems in a single document. Please include a short bio in the “Cover Letter” field.


Attach one story of no more than 5000 words. Please include a short bio in the “Cover Letter” field.


Attach one piece of no more than 5000 words. Please include a short bio in the “Cover Letter” field.
