PFN – Pocket Guide Seeking Submissions on the Theme: “Pocket Guide to the End”

August 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

We actively seek diverse material for our themed issues. Poems and prose of all kinds are welcome. Surprise us!

Theme: Pocket Guide to the End

We’re back after a long hiatus and seeking work about the end. Send us your take on the end of a meal, the close of a journey, the end of life, or anything else. We’re excited to see your poems and prose.

Deadline: August 30, 2023

General submission info

Writing should be less than 1500 words (we’re pocket-sized). Art can be of any format that shows up well in print. Send all material to, with Submission in the subject line. Attach text as .doc files and images as JPGs, GIFs, or PNGs (300 dpi or higher, please).

We accept previously published pieces if they are awesome, as well as simultaneous submissions. If your piece is accepted for another publication, please let us know immediately.

By submitting, you agree that — if we accept your work and you accept our acceptance — Pocket Guide can publish your work, with non-exclusive reprint rights. You also grant Pocket Guide the right to archive and showcase this work on our website. All other rights remain yours as the sole owner of the work.

Pocket Guide is an almost exclusively hard-copy publication. Text or artwork may be published occasionally on this website for promotional purposes, with full credit to the authors/creators.

We are not able to pay contributors. You will, however, become small-time famous by getting your name in print. You will also receive five (5) free copies of Pocket Guide to distribute to admiring friends and family.
