Annual Literary Journal Information
Updated: Oct 10
This years submissions are closed, but if you wish to contact us about next year's volume feel free to email us at MWwritersguild@gmail.com .
In order to be featured in the Midwest Writers Guild Literary Journal, you must be an official member and pay your dues. Once that is done, you can submit a piece of work 5,000 words or less. If the work exceeds 5,000 words, then you will be charged an extra fee. Submissions are taken between June and September.
Typically there is a themed contest within the submissions, but the contest based entries must be submitted before the end of July. You don't have to participate in the contest to have you work featured. Your submission's content must be around a PG-13-esque standard. Your work will be edited and sent back to you. Unless the edits are for "lewd" content or grammar/spelling, you are free to accept or reject the edits.
Once the Journal is completed and published, you can receive one copy for free. Subsequent copies after that are $10 each. If you cannot pick your copies up in person, shipping fees will apply.
Submissions can be anything from short stories to poems to novel excerpts and anything in between.
All submissions are to be sent to MWwritersGuild@gmail.com
We look forward to seeing your work!
