About

Rust and Moth is a literary journal committed to imaginative and engaging poetry. Since 2008, we have dedicated ourselves to discovering new writers and presenting their work alongside evocative graphic design. We believe in the vitality of electronic publication and strive to make our social media loud and relevant. We also believe in the tactile appeal of quality print editions. Our editors value work that errs on the side of immediacy, strong images, and heartfelt innovation. We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround time from submission to publication and we encourage you to submit! Rust and Moth stands firmly on the side of the marginalized and of the voices that have not been traditionally heard. We believe in diversity, and we are committed to the truth that can be conveyed by the written word.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
