About

[sub]liminal is a new online literary and art journal. It derives its name from the subconscious and concealed. Liminal refers to the threshold of transition between two stages, but subliminal is what is below that threshold, unbeknownst to us. At [sub]liminal, we’re interested in the subtle messages hiding in plain sight, and we’re dedicated to exploring the intricacies of our everyday realities and uncovering the beauty behind them. We seek work that strives to deepen our perception and awaken the subconscious. We accept all forms and styles [including but not limited to poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, art, and mixed media], but we love the delicate, the intricacies of both the mundane and the surreal. Surprise us—what magic can you find in the simple everyday activities? How do you walk the line between dream and reality? We want work that's haunting but powerful, raw but graceful, coarse but refined.

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.
