About

A non-sectarian, non-dogmatic publication and organization, TIFERET aims to further meaningful dialogue about what it is to be humane and spiritual in an often contradictory and confusing world. We're dedicated to promoting peace and tolerance in our readers and in the world… and to educating people on how to write meaningful poetry and prose from a deep inner place. TIFERET publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, interviews, and art. We look for high-quality creative work that expresses spiritual experiences and/or promotes tolerance. Our mission is to help raise individual and global consciousness, and we publish writing from a variety of religious and spiritual traditions.

Fiction Open Fee-based

We inter­pret the word “spir­i­tual” broadly. First, we seek well-written sto­ries, pure and sim­ple, that engage us in some small pocket of human­ity. The first page will tell us if the writer has a com­mand of story, of char­ac­ter drive, of descrip­tion, of lan­guage & syn­tax & voice. Or not. And we’re fans of imag­i­na­tion in fic­tion, so let yours emerge in the sto­ries you send us. We’re not nec­es­sar­ily inter­ested in religious-oriented sto­ries, nor are we inter­ested in ser­mons dis­guised as sto­ries or as sto­ries with overt reli­gious “messages.”

Nonfiction Open Fee-based

We like to pub­lish essays and inter­views that shed light on per­sonal expe­ri­ences of grap­pling with the invis­i­ble… or dif­fer­ent aspects of spir­i­tual tra­di­tions. Our read­ers like to learn about dif­fer­ent cul­tures and a writer’s unique jour­ney. Clear, con­cise writ­ing with good con­crete visual detail is required.

Poetry Open Fee-based

Tiferet receives a huge vol­ume of poetry sub­mis­sions, of which only a small per­cent­age are accepted. We look for the high­est qual­ity poems that dis­play mas­tery of con­tent and craft. Tech­ni­cal pro­fi­ciency is extremely impor­tant, along with clear expres­sion of var­i­ous aspects of the human spirit. We do not accept poetry that is self-consciously “reli­gious.” We pub­lish poems with strik­ing imagery and strong sonic impres­sion, and we look for engag­ing voices that do more than sim­ply tell a story or dis­play intel­lec­tual clev­er­ness. Emily Dick­in­son wrote, “If I feel phys­i­cally as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.” This is how the poems we pub­lish make us feel! Send only your very best work.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
