LIT eZINE Submissions

At LIT eZINE we aspire to create a collective of lone voices and make them heard.
LIT eZINE Vol 3 tentative Cover
Tentative Cover: Upcoming Issue


Welcome to the LIT eZINE family. We are currently accepting submissions for poetry, micro poetry, short stories, flash fiction, articles (on reading, writing, books, philosophy, life, and other related topics), reviews of new books, and book excerpts (from your own book if it can also stand alone as a piece in itself).

We also accept original photography and artwork for illustration and photo prompts.

We are looking for work that is sensitive, thought-provoking, intelligent, and humorous. We encourage artistic expression that portrays depth in characterization & ideas and exhibits a nuanced perspective of the mundane.

Please read the terms and guidelines carefully and submit accordingly.

  • Please submit only your original work.
    We accept work on all themes unless specified. However, adult content, such as erotica, horror, and dark fantasy, will not be accepted at this time as we at Lit eZine wish to reach a wider audience.
  • We welcome work published on your own website or social media pages but NOT work already published in a magazine, an anthology or a book (unless it is accepted as a book excerpt). Please mention your site where the work is already published and send us a link to the same.
