There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Please note: our submissions are currently closed until Winter 2015/2016.

The prompt literary magazine is a biannual online magazine that publishes creative work that reflects experimental and traditional work based on writing prompts and exercises.

Please submit no more than 5 poems at one time (including flash-based poetry), one work of prose, which may be fiction or creative non fiction, or up to 5 short, non-traditional selections (i.e. scenes, character profiles, “snapshots” etc based on a prompt). Each submission MUST be accompanied by the writing exercise or prompt that inspired it. Fiction / prose / essays should be no longer than 5,000 words. Please include a brief (no more than 150 words) biography with your submission.
