We welcome creative nonfiction submissions of between 1,000 and 2,000 words, title included. We believe creative nonfiction can take a number of styles and forms: write your story in the best way you know how. We love unique storytelling, and we aren’t overly prescriptive with what form your writing takes.
Although we are very unlikely to publish opinion pieces or similar journalistic articles, if your piece falls outside of those two genres, try us!
There are two submission windows each year:
***We also publish stories on our website throughout the year***
PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES OTHERWISE YOUR SUBMISSION
MAY GET REJECTED
Copyright will remain with the writer but by submitting to Virtual Zine you are granting us the non-exclusive right to publish your work online at VirtualZineMag.com and use it for promotional material. Published work may be submitted to competitions.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer feedback on pieces not selected for publication.
Please remember that most rejections are due to personal taste and not because of the quality of your work.
We will attempt to reply to all submissions within a week but this may take longer in busy periods. Please follow up on your submission if you haven’t heard from us within 4 weeks.
