About

The Writing Disorder is a literary journal devoted to literature, art and culture. We are based in Los Angeles, CA. Each issue is published online and sometimes as an ebook. The mission of our journal is to showcase new and emerging writers – particularly those in writing programs — as well as established ones. We feature new works of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and art, plus interviews with writers and artists, and some reviews. Although we strive to publish original and experimental work, The Writing Disorder remains rooted in the classic art of storytelling.

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.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
