About

K'in is the part of the ancient Mayan Long Count Calendar system which corresponds to one day. It is the smallest unit of Maya time to be counted, and it usually appears as the last glyph in a long count date. A common translation of the word means "one passage under the sun," and it is this translation that moves us, as editors, as readers, and as writers ourselves, the recognition of how, all over the planet, the stories, the poetry, the moment-to-moment memoirs, of what it means to be human are being written every day. We are determined to do what we can to celebrate the breathtaking range of beauty and diversity to be found each day, under that one sun. Our goal is to create a publication that makes a place for that range, for those diverse experiences, particularly making space for marginalized and underrepresented voices. We are, all of us, so much more alike than we are different. We are, each of us, glorious, as glorious as that sun. And every voice matters. Lofty goal? Sure. But we're here, and we're listening. We want to hear from 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. 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.
