Misplacement Magazine 2

A project of Placeholder Press (see other related projects).

About

Misplacement are an imprint of Placeholder Press. We publish art, literature, and cultural criticism. We like the words weird, eerie, gothic, magical realism, speculative fiction — however we don’t want to be limited by them either. We’re looking for work that creates a feeling that is out of time, out of place, and dizzying. This feeling can come from anywhere, any form, and any genre. We’re excited to find work we didn’t know we wanted to publish. We don’t like to define between genre and literature, high, low, or fine art, because we believe that no matter their differences, how spiky their boundaries, they are best when they inform each other. We are searching for possibilities.

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.
