Snarl, a literary journal, seeks work from creators of marginalized identities.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please let us know as soon as your work is accepted elsewhere. Please find specific guidelines for each genre below.

It is not necessary to submit a tip jar submission, and whether a submission is paid or free will NOT influence our decision to decline or accept a work. Tip Jar submissions help us to offset production costs and pay our contributors. Thank you!


 Fiction and Nonfiction: Please send us one previously unpublished short story, novel excerpt, or literary essay of no more than 6,000 words. Though we have no restrictions on style, our editors tends to favor work with rich, dynamic characters and memorable language. Please submit your work in Standard Manuscript Format. Double-spaced. 12-point font. Please include your contact information and an approximate word count on the first page, as well as page numbers throughout.

Poetry: You may submit up to five previously unpublished poems at a time. Please single-space your poems and start a new page for every poem. Please include contact information on the first page of your manuscript.

We also seek book reviews, interviews, craft essays, humor writing, graphic narratives, and artwork.

We aim to respond to all submissions within three months. 

Submit under this form if you would like the detailed feedback of our editors. For $10, we will provide analysis of your piece's strengths and room for growth. Our feedback will examine how subject, style, characterization, plot, and theme operate in the story or essay. Please note that this option does not guarantee acceptance to the journal or the option to revise and resubmit.


Please send one previously unpublished short story, novel excerpt, or literary essay of no more than 6,000 words. Flash and micro-prose are welcome. You may send up to three pieces if they are each less than 1,000 words. Please send flash/micro in one document.

Please note: We will not accept work that perpetuates hatred toward people of color, women, members of the LGBTQIA community, disabled people, immigrants, the impoverished, or other marginalized identities.
