The Sprawl Mag is now closed to submissions of speculative poetry, short fiction, and visual art.


We pay contributors $20 CAD per published piece. 

We encourage submissions from QTBIPOC, women, nonbinary, queer, and disabled writers.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your piece is picked up elsewhere so we can congratulate you! We do not accept work that has been previously published.

Please include a brief, third-person, 100-word biography with your submission.

Please title your documents: firstnamelastname_genre (eg. andrenorton_shortfic)

- Poetry submissions should be in a legible, size 12-14pt font (eg. Times New Roman)

- Poetry submissions should not exceed 40 lines per piece

- Poetry submissions may contain 1-4 poems

- Please submit your work as a DOC, DOCX, or ODT file

A note on copyright:
If we accept your piece, we acquire first serial rights to your work, meaning the piece will be first published exclusively by The Sprawl Mag. After the piece has been published, all rights revert back to you.
