Stone Telling 45

Do not submit here! This project is on hiatus.


POETRY: STONE TELLING is looking for literary speculative poems with a strong emotional core. We focus on surrealism, magic realism, fantasy, science fiction, and slipstream. We will consider mainsteam (non-speculative) poetry that fits the flavor of the magazine, but please note that we are primarily a speculative poetry market. We are especially interested in seeing work that is multi-cultural and boundary-crossing, work that deals with othering and Others, work that considers race, gender, sexuality, identity, and disability issues in nontrivial and evocative ways. We’d love to see multilingual and experimental poetry. Please read the first issue to see what kind of work we showcase.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
