About

Clockhouse is an eclectic conversation about the work-in-progress of life--a soul arousal, a testing ground, a new community, a call for change. We are interested in diverse voices and nontraditional narratives, and in writing that attempts to understand our place in the world and responsibility to each other. Past contributors include Paisley Rekdal, Michael Carroll, Marguerite Duras, T Clutch Fleishmann, Cristina Garcia, David Greenspan, Rinne Groff, Cara Hoffman, Ira Sukrungruang, Purvi Shah, and Naomi Shihab Nye, among other exciting new voices. Featured interviews include Cynthia Bond, Dani Shapiro, James Hannaham and M.T. Anderson. Work published in Clockhouse has received Pushcart Prize special mention. Clockhouse is published by Clockhouse Writers’ Conference in partnership with the MFAW program at Goddard College.

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.
