About

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.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for "tip jar" 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.
