About

Profane is a print journal that features an eclectic mix of poetry, essays, and stories. Our aim is simple: to publish good writing. To us, good writing is the sort that you find yourself turning over and over again in your head, hours and days and weeks after you’ve read it. Good writing is the writing that worms itself into your brain and won’t leave. Beyond that, as our name suggests, we’re open to writing that’s “profane” in one sense or another. We’re the kind of people who’ve always had a fascination with the things you’re not allowed to say. That doesn’t mean all the writing we publish is necessarily profane. Some of it is just flat out good writing. But the boundaries of progress and understanding have always been pushed forward by the profane idea, and as such, we feel obligated to offer the profane a home.

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.
