About

Sisyphus is a magazine that focuses on contemporary issues surrounding art, culture, and language. “There is no fate that cannot be surmounted…” says Camus. Like the stone that is rolled up the hill only to roll back down, meaning is man-made and must be created over and over again. To create meaning, you must move forward, without certainty. Sisyphus is committed to printing those efforts that attempt to get a stone to the top of the hill.

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.
