The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts - Poetry (Fiction) (Nonfiction)

Note: If you've been previously published here, please wait a year until submitting again.

Note: no more than 3 submissions per genre per reading period.

The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts is looking for, as you might guess, "compressed creative arts." We accept fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, mixed media, visual arts, and even kitchen sinks, if they are compressed in some way.

We do not publish poetry that has line breaks, but we are thrilled to consider prose poetry without line breaks.

This market is temporarily closed.
