Call for Submission

Starting January ’23 we are inviting submissions for criticism, literary/craft essays and book reviews.

All submissions should be sent through our Submit page through the deadline of June 30, 2023. We publish essays of about 1000 – 1200 words, but if you have a remarkable piece that could run a little longer, please check with us using the form in the Submit page.

We do not accept unsolicited Book Reviews. Please send a statement of interest using the form in the Submit page. Upon acceptance, you will be provided the Review guidelines. 

AW is a paying market – we pay $20 per essay and $10 per review. Look here for the submission guidelines. We are excited to review your work and thank you in advance for sharing it with The Artisanal Writer!
