Our response time falls between 3-6 months.
- You must be between the ages of 14 to 21 by the time we publish your work.
- Submit your writing to the proper email;
- Please submit your writing in a single document (.docx or .txt) attached to the email, and within the body you include your cover letter and your authors biography.
- Make sure there is no identifying information within the word document- we try to read blind, and this helps us greatly.
- Follow page/piece limit requirements for your established genre;
- Poetry: Up to six poems, single spaced
- Fiction: Up to 15 pages, double spaced. If interested in sending a longer piece of work, you may do so, but please be aware our response time will be longer.
- Nonfiction: Up to 12 pages, double spaced. The same length inquiry for fiction applies here.
- We allow simultaneous submissions, but if your work is accepted anywhere else, please email in the same email thread to let the editor know you are pulling a piece. If you are just pulling a single piece in a multi-piece submission, please specify which piece it is.
- We do not accepted previously published work. Websites such as TeenInk, Wattpad, Tumblr, or another blogging site is considered published, and we will not accept it.
- If your work is accepted by Apprehension Magazine, we request First North American Serial Rights for your work- which means we are the first location in North America that publishes your work. If you publish the same piece afterwards, please give credit to us as the original publication.
