The Creative Truth 1

A project of Peeking Cat Literary (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (March 2019). We provide the following information as an archive.


Everyone has a story to tell, and we want to gather interesting, diverse and beautifully crafted true stories, whether they span weeks, months, or just a few moments. The journal will include short stories, personal essays and memoirs, and you are invited to contribute. How much of your story is truth and how much you use your creative licence is up to you, but we are looking for writing that is courageous and revealing - the only theme here is you.

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.
