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. Submissions for our Spring 2019 issue are no longer being accepted. 

Submit your work by emailing

Please give your submission the same title as your work and be sure to omit your name from all pieces (document title included). For written submissions, please designate the work as poetry or prose in the document title. Please limit written submissions to five pieces total, and limit visual submissions to ten pieces total; please send one email with all submissions attached.

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

2. Submit to our online offshoot, The Little. We welcome submissions on a rolling basis, year round—just send your work via email to The Little publishes blog posts, book reviews, author interviews, and media that would not fit in a print issue (audio, video, etc.). We also occasionally accept short essays and other creative writing, especially if it is timely and would benefit from a faster release than is possible with our print magazine. If you’re unsure whether your piece is a fit, just shoot us an email.

We look forward to reviewing your work!
