Guidelines/Submissions

6/1/2021 Submissions are now OPEN for our second magazine, tentatively titled “Greater Heat”.

Submissions Guidelines:

Please submit no later than June 30, 2021

Send all submissions to kyotocryptids@protonmail.com as an attachment.

Email subject should be “Submission: [Prose/Photography/Art] [Title of your work]”. For example, “Submission: Prose – The Cake”

Simultaneous submissions are fine. Reprints also acceptable. If you have published your work previously, please inform us where and when.

You will be contacted within six weeks of June 30th about whether you’ve been accepted or not. If accepted, please send a blurb (max 3 sentences) about yourself.

Please indicate in your email what name we should use for you.

Submissions in English and Japanese are welcome.

Contributors will receive a physical copy of the magazine.

For prose:

When in doubt, follow the William Shunn format

Both .docx and .rtf formats are fine

Max 5,000 words. We’ll take a look at longer things, but it will be a hard sell unless you can convince us to break it into chunks for multiple magazines.

For photography/art:

Must be your original work

High quality photos/ art at 300dpi or higher

.jpeg files (please avoid .zip or .pdf files)

Provide a caption for your work + the media used to make it
