Call for Submissions – Toho Journal

Call for Submissions – Toho Journal

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, March 31, 2019

Philadelphia’s Toho Publishing—in conjunction with Green Street Poetry and St. Michael’s Lutheran in Kensington—presents Toho Journal.

Toho Journal publishes art, photography, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. While we focus on Philadelphia, writers of all stages and geographies are invited to apply.

In ancient Japanese, toho means sword. That sword cuts to the essential. As such, they will be publishing essential pieces (i.e., short, 500 words max—though going a little over is okay).

The theme of the first edition is unity.

Submissions will be accepted until March 31. The $3 fee goes to paying for Submittable and publication. Eventually, they hope to pay our contributors.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, just notify Toho immediately if the work has been accepted elsewhere via your Submittable account.

Response Time: While many of us have worked on magazines before, this is the first edition of this one—so please be patient!

Requirements:

Fiction & nonfiction: 500 words max. Submit only one piece.
Poetry: 1 – 3 poems.
Art & photography: 3 – 5 pictures/artworks
Manuscripts must be paginated and clearly labeled with the author’s name on every page.
