SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY

CLOSED

What are we looking for?

We want work that evokes a powerful emotional reaction, that sinks its teeth into our soul, and leaves us haunted long after we've left the page. Send us your passions, your heartaches, and buried regrets.


Reading our previously published work is always encouraged as it is the best indicator of what we are looking for. 

Poetry:1-3 poems, all in one file.

Fiction: Work up to 3,500 words.

Creative Nonfiction: Work up to 3,500 words.

We do not accept previously published work and ask that you submit only ONCE each submission period unless you have been invited to submit again. Multiple submissions without invitation will be declined without being read.  Simultaneous submissions are allowed and encouraged, but please notify us immediately if your piece has been accepted elsewhere.


Please send your work to evokelit@gmail.com with a cover letter and third person bio (approx. 50 words or less). Submissions should be sent as a Microsoft Word document or pasted within the body of an email. No PDF's please. 

If accepted, we ask for first rights to publish and non-exclusive rights to keep it on our website indefinitely. Upon publication, all rights revert back to the author, but we ask that EVOKE is credited in any future publications. We also reserve the right to request edits on any work accepted prior to publication.

At this time, we are not a paying market, but hope to be soon! Please support us in reaching that goal by buying us a coffee.

We aim to respond as quickly as possible. Please allow 2 weeks before inquiring. 

We look forward to reading your work! <3
