Send us your works of art, broadly defined: we are interested in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, the at-home installation you made this spring, collage, printmaking, illustration, anarchist cross-stitching, video art and beyond. We’re also interested in forms that combine the written word with any of the above. We seek work from both emerging and established artists. 

Submit your work as a .jpg or .png file; if we accept your work for publication, we will communicate with you about image quality and how we can best showcase your work. If you’re sending us multiple pieces, please indicate whether those are stand-alone works or part of a series. Please also include a brief artist statement that describes your project and contextualizes your art practice.

Send us your risks and outcasts, your ugly, honest, and revealing. Send us your resistances, spells, and curses. Send us your poems that embrace the unknown, your poems from monsters and to monsters. We believe poetry is an inclusive space—we want poems with a range of identies, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities, sexualities, races, ethnicities. We want your fresh voices and challenging poems, the ones that disrupt language, startle, surprise, and engage. 


Please send 3-5 poems with a maximum submission length of 10 pages. Please send all your poems in one document in either a .doc or .docx file.

Send us the stories that need to be out in the world. The ones we couldn’t ask you to send us, because we don’t yet know we need them. Whether you’re trying something old in a way we haven’t seen, or something new in a way that feels immediately classic, we want to read the stories you make essential: the voice that we can’t get out of our head, the off-kilter narrative, the questions that don’t have ready answers. Surprise us.

We are especially eager to be a platform for voices that are consciously, unconsciously, and systematically underrepresented.

While we love reading stories of all lengths, it is more difficult to make space for anything over 15 pages in Fugue. Please attach your story as a .doc or .docx file. Finally, we know the anxiety of submission; we are grateful for your trust and look forward to reading your stories.

We are looking for essays that experiment, that take formal risks and let the language lead. This includes literary essays of all sorts—from personal essay to flash nonfiction and hybrid works—but we especially enjoy a clear voice, genre-bending sensibilities, surprising language, and attention to the twists and turns of intellection. In any case, we are looking for a compelling narrative that makes us think. We hope to include both established and new voices in our pages, including voices that are historically underrepresented. 

Please do not submit works longer than 5,000 words. In most cases, we do not publish academic or scholarly articles, but if you’ve got a piece of auto-theory on your hands, send it our way!

We also encourage you to look through our  recent online issues to get a sense of what we like to publish. Thank  you for your submissions—we look forward to reading your work. Please attach your work as a .doc or .docx file.
