The Glacier is looking for work for our inaugural issue. We will try to respond to submissions within three months and will read submissions thereafter on a rolling basis. We plan to publish two issues a year. We cannot at this time pay for accepted work. Please wait to hear back from us regarding your current submission before sending more work. If we have accepted your work, unless requested, please wait at least one year from the date your work appears before sending another submission. Include a cover letter with your submission and a short bio written in third person.


GENERAL GUIDELINES

We want to be knocked for a loop by the writing you send. Make it absurd. Surprise us and scare us. Defy our expectations. We want to see work from BIPOC, disabled, and queer writers. We want to see work you’ve returned to, because it keeps you awake at night. We want to see work that risks everything. If other magazines have rejected work you have believed in for years, send it to us.


POETRY

The Glacier prefers lyric/associative poetry over straight narrative, but do not have a house style. If it’s good, we will consider it. Send up to seven poems, all within a single file. We accept simultaneous submissions but if your work is accepted elsewhere, please add a note withdrawing poem(s) from your submission. Previously published poems not accepted. Contributors retain rights but are asked to acknowledge The Glacier as first publisher when poems appear elsewhere.


FICTION

Again, here at The Glacier, we prefer more experimental work to straight narrative. We like fiction that gets to the point and that keeps burning in a reader’s mind after the last word is read . . . 1200 words max. Send up to three stories. Single-or double-spaced is fine. We accept simultaneous submissions but if your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know using the notes feature on Submittable. Previously published work not accepted. Contributors retain rights but are asked to acknowledge The Glacier as first publisher when stories appear elsewhere.


VISUAL ART

The Glacier prefers collage and mixed media artwork, though we are open to painting, drawing, and photography. Don’t particularly appreciate groups of artworks that tend to be doodles of various styles with no cohesion linking them. Send up to 8 images. We accept simultaneous submissions but if your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know using the notes feature on Submittable. Previously published work not accepted. Contributors retain rights but are asked to acknowledge The Glacier as first publisher when artworks appear elsewhere.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
