Mason Jar Press Journal 5

A project of Mason Jar Press (see other related projects)

About

Lit journals are in our DNA, but Mason Jar has yet to do one. And you know what? Now's the time! And what do we want? Your hard-to-place work. Your experimental writing, your weird fanfic, your awkward, personal, extremely specific writing. We want you to love it and believe in it so strongly that you just know it's the right fit for us.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary 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.
