Getting your work out there.

Do you have a short story, poem, or longer manuscript that you’d like to submit? Please read our submission guidelines before sending your work to us. If you need clarity on something listed here, or if you have a question about something that is not listed here, you can always ask us directly.

We regret that we cannot consider projects that do not follow these submission guidelines.

Simultaneous vs. Multiple Submissions

We will not accept multiple submissions from any one person, unless otherwise noted in open calls for submission. So please send one manuscript at a time. We are also generally looking for unpublished work, unless otherwise noted in open calls for submission. Simultaneous submissions to other publishers are okay, as long as they are identified as such and we are notified immediately upon acceptance elsewhere.

Cover Letter

Please submit a cover letter with your submission, listing:

  • Your contact information and a 1-2 line summary of the piece
  • The title, genre, and word count of the submission
  • Whether the work is unpublished or has been previously published
  • If previously published, please tell us where and when
  • If you have been published in any major publications or won any awards
  • Any association or relationship with a worker at Radix Media or a guest editor
  • Past publication or relationship with Radix Media as a publisher
  • How you heard about Radix Media

Manuscript Guidelines (Short Fiction, Nonfiction, & Poetry)

  • We prefer typed, double-spaced pages (poetry can be single-spaced)
  • Numbered pages
  • Should be 10,000 words or less. Excerpts of longer works will be considered if they are self-contained. 
  • Please attach your submission as a .DOCX file. No .DOC or .PDF files.

Manuscript Guidelines (Novellas & Novels)

  • We prefer typed, double-spaced pages (poetry can be single-spaced)
  • Numbered pages
  • Can be 17,500 words and up
  • Please attach your submission as a .DOCX file. No .DOC or .PDF files.

Submitting by Mail

We strongly prefer digital submissions, but if snail mail is a must, you may mail them to:

Radix Media
ATTN: Editorial
522 Bergen Street
Brooklyn, NY 11217

We regret that we cannot return submissions without a SASE, so please do not send original works.

Notifications and Queries

Because our workload as a commercial printer can be heavy during particular times of the year, please expect a response from us within 6-8 weeks. Please also wait until 8 weeks have passed before you inquire. Should you wish to withdraw your manuscript from consideration for any reason, please e-mail us with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The date, genre, and title of the submission
