Third Wednesday 117

See other projects related to this listing


THIRD WEDNESDAY provides yet another outlet for experienced writers and artists to see their work in print. The primary impetus for this endeavor is to distribute to you the poetic voices that strike us most deeply. In deciding to expand the publication to include short fiction and artwork, we hope to serve and court a broader range of contributors and to more comprehensively supply the imaginative cravings of the hungry public.
FICTION: The rules of fiction apply to this genre, but brevity is of the essence, A beginning, middle, and resolution of conflict outweigh character development.
POETRY: All types of poetry are welcome, from formal to experimental. Emphasis is placed on the ideas conveyed, craft and language, beauty of expression, and the picture that extends beyond the frame of the poem. Length is open. Quality is paramount. TW uses some longer poems.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
