Snarl, a literary journal, seeks creative work by writers of marginalized identities.
Please send one previously unpublished essay of no more than 6,000 words. Flash and micro-nonfiction are welcome. You may send up to three pieces if they are all less than 1,000 words. Please send flash/micro in one document.
We are looking for lyric essays, craft essays, and topical essays, especially dealing with social justice.
Please submit your work in Standard Manuscript Format. Double-spaced. 12-point font, and include your contact information and an approximate word count on the first page, as well as page numbers throughout.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. Please notify us immediately if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
We aim to respond within three months of submission. If you have not heard from us after three months, please feel free to reach out to us in a note on your submission. Submissions will be considered for both online and print publication. We are able to offer a small honorarium for published work.
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. No graphic depictions of rape, incest, or child abuse, please. We're not saying these subjects cannot be approached effectively, but we are not looking for these narratives at this time.
Thank you for your interest in our publication!
