Micro, Art, & Miscellaneous Call for The Metaworker Literary Magazine

We are The Metaworker, an online literary magazine where great stories are forged.

Our mission is to publish great things to read. Send us the stuff you don’t think will be published anywhere else. We want new ideas, words that make us ponder, narratives that upend stereotypes. We don’t care if you’re an established writer or someone who’s never been published before, if you're a student or returning to writing after a career in something else, if you're 16 or 80, if you live in the United States, in India, in New Zealand, in Mexico – if you’ve got something you think needs to be shared with the world, submit it to us!

We publish fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art, and more on our website every Monday at noon PST, plus we sometimes post fun extras (like our podcast episodes) on Wednesdays or Fridays.

If you love what we’re doing, follow us on social media, consider donating, and invite friends! Come join us on Discord for some fun writing chats, too.
