Submission Guide

Please note: Salomé is currently closed to submissions.  Unfortunately, submissions received when calls are closed won't receive feedback and can't be saved for consideration when calls re-open.


Before you submit your work to us (thank you!), you will need to check out our guide to submitting work.

To submit your work to be featured in an issue of Salomé, please know:

  • We welcome submissions of fiction, non-fiction, flash-fiction and poetry

  • Submissions are accepted from anyone who identifies as female of any age

  • Submissions must be original, unpublished, not submitted or accepted elsewhere for publication or have been published previously in Salomé

  • Submissions must be between 100-500 words for flash fiction and 500-3500 words for fiction and non-fiction

  • For poems there is no maximum number of lines, but poems should be no more than two pages long (Arial, 10). 

  • We accept only one submission per writer per issue, across fiction, non-fiction, flash fiction and poetry. We accept a limited number of submissions in total per issue and this ensures that as many people as possible are able to submit.

  • Submissions must be written in English

  • Submissions must be sent in a Word document

  • Only those submissions submitted after we open, and before we close, submissions will be read. Submissions received after the deadline (GMT) won't be accepted. If you live outside of the UK, please make sure you've worked out the time difference to get it in on time. 

  • Submissions should include your full name, a short blurb about you (50 words max) and your twitter handle (if you have one)

It's really that simple. 

Submissions that don't fulfil each of the points of this guide, unfortunately, won't be accepted. Though we will follow up for blurbs and twitter handles if you forget to include them.

We believe writers and artists should be paid for their work (ahem, HuffPost). So, as of July 2017, we'll be paying our writers and artists. You can check out why this is so important to us on our original statement when we were working up to it.
