Cezanne's Carrot 18

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


Cezanne’s Carrot publishes short fiction and creative nonfiction that celebrates the universe and the human experience in uplifting, revolutionary ways. At Cezanne’s Carrot, words and images explore the higher aspects of human nature, the integration of inner and outer worlds, and the exciting threshold where the familiar meets the unknown. We offer a positive, enlightening literary experience–and support the growing genre of literature that openly explores spiritual, transformational, visionary, and metaphysical themes.
FICTION: We accept: metaphysical, literary, visionary, magical realism, irrealism, surrealism, humor, experimental, speculative, and other genres as long as the work is literary and embraces our metaphysical mission and theme.
NONFICTION: Give us your compelling personal stories. We accept personal essays and memoirs that deal with topics related to our theme. We’re not looking for how-to articles, scholarly discussions, or political or dogmatic essays.

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.
