Thank you for your interest in submitting to HoosierLit, a bi-annual (Spring + Fall) journal of literature and other writing.
You’re here because you want to see your work published. The Geeky Press is here because they want to publish work. To make that happen, you’re likely submitting an unsolicited manuscript, which they then have to read. They’re a small, but mighty, editorial group, which means it can take them awhile to get back to you. Please keep that in mind. They’re reading your work as quickly as they can.
All submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, about those guidelines.
Fall Issue: August 30
STYLE AND SUBJECT
They publish fiction, nonfiction (creative nonfiction, essays), screenplays, scripts, black-and-white photography, and poetry.
Essays and Creative Nonfiction: Submit completed work no more than 5,000 words
Fiction + Short Stories: Submit completed work between 1,000 and 5,000 words
Scripts: no more than 15 pages
Poetry: Submit completed work; no more than 5 pages
Photo Essay: No more than 5 black-and-white pictures and 100 words per picture
Please keep yours brief, though they do like to hear from people who like the magazine. They’re not concerned about writing degrees or past publications, so don’t be daunted if you don’t have an MFA or much in the way of previously published work.
Please don’t use colors or weird fonts. (They strip both out before we start the design process.) Visual poetry is not accepted.
Please include a 150-200 word bio with your submission. They will use that on their contributor page. What you send is what they will publish, unless it’s too long. Then you’re leaving your bio fate in their hands.
PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED WORK
What about simultaneous submissions? If you submit to other places, drop them a note. And then don’t be a jerk. Let them know as soon as you know.
HoosierLit will be published using the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International Creative Commons license, and each author will retain the rights to his or her work.
YOU GET PAID
Contributing authors receive a direct and equal division of the royalties. If they publish ten contributors, each person receives ten percent of every sale. Payments are handled directly through Lulu.
If all of this hasn’t answered your questions, you can contact them through their website.
