About

District Lit publishes poetry, fiction, and visual art on a rolling basis. Founded in 2011, our mission is publishing the best stories and poems from new and emerging writers, complemented by interviews with diverse visual artists. Our vision is an online community in which we present the stories that writers want to tell and that readers want to read. We are here to publish writing that smashes down the borders in which we district our lives, and we hope you find something that changes your world

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.
