Next Submissions Deadline
April 1st, 2013
If you wish to submit work to MaLa, please submit a maximum of three pieces: poetry, short fiction or works of literary non-fiction. The theme for the current issue is “Arrivals and Departures.” We also will accept some submissions that do not fit within the theme. Submissions should not exceed 3,000 words, and are preferred by email. Submit both in the body text and as a Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
Graphic Art and Photography
Graphic art and photographic submissions should also be sent to email@example.com. Please note that as MaLa is a black-and-white publication submissions should be of high contrast.
Any submission carries the understanding that the author agrees to grant MaLa single-edition non-exclusive print and electronic world rights. Beyond this, authors retain all rights and title to their works published in MaLa , but we do ask that you indicate that your work was first published in MaLa in any subsequent publication.
With respect to your contribution, you represent that you can legally grant the rights set out in the terms given above, and that it does not violate any third party’s copyrights, trademarks, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
All submissions that are accepted for publication are edited at the editorial board’s discretion in collaboration with the author. There is no payment offered for successful submissions. Authors of accepted work receive two copies of the issue their contribution appears in.
The MaLa editorial board commits to nominating contributors’ work for awards and recognition.
Please note that we may not be able to respond individually to unsuccessful applicants, and we are not in a position to offer you feedback on your work or enter into any correspondence about rejected work.
