Thanks for your interest in submitting to The Yale Literary Magazine. There are two ways to do so:

1. Submit to our semesterly print issue. We publish poetry, prose, translation, and visual art by Yale undergraduates. We are currently accepting submissions for our Fall 2019 issue. The deadline is Tuesday, October 15, at 11:59 pm.

Submit your work by emailing

Please submit no more than five written pieces and ten visual pieces; send us one email with each submission attached as its own individual document.

Save each submission as TITLEEOFPIECE_GENREOFPIECE. Omit your name from all pieces you submit (document title included). For written submissions, please designate the work as poetry or prose in the document title.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our editor-in-chief, Elaine Wang, at

2. Submit to our online offshoot, The Little. Each month, we’ll solicit and publish a selection of pieces around a central idea. For the inaugural September installment, the theme is: “Out of Context.”

We accept original art, poetry, prose — which includes fiction, non-fiction, or any genre-defying writing of up to 1000 words. Compared to our biannual print magazine, The Little is a space for spur-of-the-moment, cross-disciplinary, creative experimentation. Please send your work to us before September 25.
