We are currently open to submisisons. The deadline for this reading period is December 31st.
If you’re not familiar with Structo, take a few minutes to read through some of our back issues. They’re free to read, and this is by far the easiest way to find out whether we might enjoy your kind of writing. If you’re not a fan of reading on screen, you could always pick up a copy. If anything isn’t clear—or if you have any questions—please do get in touch. As well as following the specific guidelines here, we would encourage everyone to take a look at this excellent article from The Review Review for some general advice on the best way to go about submitting writing to magazines.
Why do I need to include a photograph with my submission?
As editor, I was torn about doing the same thing again. On the one hand we don’t want to put arbitrary barriers in-between potential contributors and the magazine, but on the other it did make the process fun again; the response from writers and others was heartening, it was great to see the magazines people are reading, and we received hardly any scattershot submissions, which made the job of reading more enjoyable for our team.
And so, for the foreseeable future, alongside submissions of short stories and poetry, we are also asking for a photo of a literary magazine (any literary magazine) bought recently. Not sure how to do this? Here’s some inspiration from that issue.
