Thank you for your interest in The Pensieve. At this time, we are open to submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Before sending us your work, please read the following guidelines.
We are looking for unpublished pieces that are compelling, immersive, and beautifully written, regardless of the genre.
While we welcome works on any topic, we do not publish erotica, diatribe, or literature with excessive swearing or explicit sex or violence.
The maximum word count is roughly 4000 words.
When we accept a piece, we work with the author to make revisions and edits to ensure we publish pieces of the best possible quality. The feedback we give is similar to what you would receive in a writing workshop. Please be willing to adapt and improve your writing where necessary.
Send your submission as an attached document (.doc or .docx file) or in the body of the email to email@example.com. Write “Pensieve Submission” for the subject line. We will let you know as soon as possible if your writing is accepted.
If you become a published author, you will retain full rights over your work, meaning you may publish it again elsewhere as long as you site The Pensieve as the place of first publication.
We look forward to hearing from you!
