We have a quarterly submission cycle so there is deadline for regular upcoming issues. Please check the appropriate dates for sending your work. Notices for these are regularly posted on our Instagram account.

 

We are reading, every day, all month, and a literary magazine can never have enough submissions. That said, due to the volume of submissions – we now take 15-30 days to respond to accepted pieces.

It is hard work, and we are not be available around the clock. That is why, we have tried to make this simpler for you. Almost every query that we can think of, is answered on this page. If you still feel we have missed something, feel free to get in touch via email - writeforunicorn@gmail.com

Send us your work (relevant images if any) along with your photograph ( we do not accept selfies), bio note (strictly in third person voice in 100 words or less, social media links) : writeforunicorn@gmail.com
