Saint Augustine's Magazine

Saint Augustine’s Magazine is undergoing a thorough review by our University for official approval.


Among Augustine’s many contributions to the world, he is the patron saint of brewers, printers, and sore eyes so send us your best. While respecting how far our University has come, the focus of Saint Augustine’s Magazine is on works of resilience. As in Saint Augustine’s Confessions, we also believe in the power of redemption so the work we accept must be grounded within the experiences of the human condition.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable and encouraged. For fiction especially, if your work is accepted elsewhere (congratulations!), please withdraw it.

For poetry, there is no need to withdraw your submission unless multiple poems have been placed elsewhere. You always have the option to decline a contract. If you feel you must notify us, please send us a note.

Please do not submit work that has been published in print or online. This includes but is not limited to work appearing in other journals, newspapers, magazines, or publicly accessible blogs.

At this time, our publication frequency is currently unknown even to us as we are just starting out. We plan to publish issues online as well as in print and we hope to work up to a steady and a reliable publication frequency.

We anticipate a quick response time initially. Please feel free to query after 4 months by sending us a note.

When you submit your work, we take that as an indication you’re interested in Saint Augustine’s Magazine and our work, so we will add your email to our mailing list. We send a monthly newsletter, and once in a while an extra email, but we do our best not to overload in-boxes, and of course you are free to unsubscribe at any time.

If your work is accepted for publication, please refrain from submitting again for a year.

For Poetry

Each submission can contain up to three poems.

For Flash Fiction

We are open to both mimetic and speculative fiction.

Our main criterion is the excellence of the story.

Submissions should be no longer than 1,200 words.

Rights and Payment

We cannot offer cash payment at this time. This is something we would like to build up to. At this time, payment for accepted work is one copy of the magazine.

There are no active public submission calls for this project.
