SUBMIT

Thank you so much for considering Eucalyptus Lit as a home for your words!

We're open year-round, and accept submissions of poetry, prose, hybrid and/or experimental genres, and artwork. No work created utilizing artificial intelligence aids will be considered for submission.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please indicate this in your email, as well as let us know immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else. We reserve First North American Electronic Rights, and all rights revert to the author upon publication, although we ask that you credit Eucalyptus Lit as the first publisher of your work. We will nominate for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

We will get back to you in under three to four weeks. However, our editors are all busy students juggling schoolwork and our own artistic careers—if we have not made a decision after four weeks have passed, do query and let us know!

Unfortunately, Eucalyptus Lit is currently not a paying market. However, we'll shout out all our contributors on our social media, as well as try to promote their work any way we can.

Please note that we have zero tolerance for hateful or discriminatory language. Submissions that have been deemed to contain such views will be rejected without further consideration, and we reserve the right to ban future submissions. 

Submission Guidelines

Submit all work through our submission form: https://forms.gle/LzVDV7f7u15fWyUY7

Submitting through our submission form is preferred, but if you cannot access it for any reason, you may email your submission to us at eucalyptus.lit@gmail.com. Include the word "SUBMISSION" in your email title, a cover letter, and a personal bio with less than 75 words.

  • For poetry, please send up to five poems single-spaced, in a pdf or word document, starting each poem on a new page.

  • For prose, send up to three pieces double-spaced, with a total word count of less than 3,500 words.

  • For hybrid/experimental genres, please limit video/audio to under three minutes, and number of pictures to five or under.

  • For artwork, please send up to five high quality JPEG or PNG files.

 

We will get back to you in under two to four weeks and provide feedback upon request. However, our editors are all busy students juggling schoolwork and our own artistic careers—if we have not made a decision after four weeks have passed, do query and let us know! 

We offer expedited consideration of your work for $5, with a response given within the next business day. Additionally, our staff will provide in-depth feedback on a submission of poetry or prose for $8 within a period of 1-2 weeks. Please note that though your consideration may be expedited, our staff requires time to compile our feedback: requests for feedback and expedited consideration are treated separately.

 

If you would like to request a 1 day response time and/or receive feedback from our staff, please make a payment through this link: 

https://www.gofundme.com/f/donate-to-support-the-literary-community.

 

Include the words "EXPEDITED," "FEEDBACK," or "EXPEDITED + FEEDBACK" in your email subject line if submitting via email.

All proceeds will go toward operational costs and charity donation.
