LandLocked is open for submissions through April 1.

We seek to publish diverse voices, including works by writers who are people of color, queer, transgender, disabled, indigenous, international, and/or underrepresented in literary magazines. We are interested in work that breaks the boundaries of tradition, form, and genre. 

We do not accept previously published work (this includes anywhere on the web). Simultaneous submissions are acceptable and encouraged, but please contact us immediately upon acceptance elsewhere and withdraw your submission on Submittable. Please see specific genre requirements before submitting your work. Additionally, please wait six months after receiving a response on your submission before you submit again.

Please contact us at with questions or comments.

We love being challenged and surprised, both in content and in form. We are looking for pieces that push us to see through a particular lens and experience otherwise underrepresented perspectives. We are especially drawn to pieces that challenge the boundaries of the genre, incorporate fictional and poetic elements, and make us question how "creative" nonfiction can be. Please submit either one piece under 6,000 words or up to 3 pieces under 1,000 words each. Please only submit once per submission period.
