KAIROS Literary Magazine 37

See other projects related to this listing.

About

We look for pieces that establish both a control of language and a command of artistry. Not only do we want to be at the forefront of literary thought, we want to publish writers who find tranquility in writing their most cathartic work, who emanate artistic expression. KAIROS means “the precise and opportune moment.”

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions, and does not offer monetary payment for accepted 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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
