About

As a journal new to the literary landscape, we’re willing to take a risk or two and try something a little different here at Sequestrum. It’s an experiment that, so far as we can tell, only the occasional heavyweight anthology will touch. Among traditional journal publishers, it’s strictly taboo. An editor’s no-no. An unspoken gentlemen’s agreement sealed with a handshake in the backrooms of literary Geneva Conventions everywhere. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to republish some unsolicited literature. The way we see it, the start of every publication cycle sends scores of outstanding writing from yesteryear to the literary wayside. (Not everyone so thoughtfully offers up their entire Archives for free.) An ever-expanding swamp of forgotten literature is the nature of the beast we call publishing, but it’s an imbalance we aim to help correct.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

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.
