About

After Happy Hour welcomes submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art. We're not limited to any particular genre. In fact, we're not big fans of the whole idea of genre. Whether you write sci-fi poetry, graphic memoirs, historical flash fiction, or straight up literary--if it has strong characters and tight language, we want to read it. We're based in Pittsburgh, PA and have a particular affinity for writers with a connection to the city. Don't take that as a limit to our demographic, however. We welcome submissions from anywhere in the world.

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.
