GlassFire Magazine Submission Guidelines


Submit your poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and artwork

Deadlines for 2014:


Summer issue: June 30

Fall issue: September 30

Winter issue: December 31

 Please only submit 2 pieces of prose and 3 poems per issue.  If you submit more, we won't read them.  We just don't have time.


-Your name, address, and email address should appear on the top right-hand corner of the first page. 


-Your name and page number should be in the header of every page.


-Word limit:  Please try to keep your stories to 3,000 words or so.  If it's over 5,000 words, we may reject it.  Note that we only pay a flat $10 per story. 


-Please submit all works in Times New Roman 12 point type with 1-inch margins on all sides.


-Please put ALL of your poems in the same Word document or email.


-We accept photograph and scanned artwork submissions.  Please submit your work in .jpg format with at least 300 dpi. 


-We welcome all genres; however, we are not looking for R rated material, so please do not submit erotica or stories with unnecessary language or violence.


-GlassFire does accept previously published work as long as all rights have reverted back to the author.  We do accept simultaneous submissions as long as you let us know if the piece is selected for publication elsewhere.


-Despite our name, PegLeg Publishing isn't big on pirate stories.  We'll read them and, if they're good, publish them, but they won't receive special attention.


What about payment?  Even though we're an e-zine, we do pay.  Our current rate is $10 per story/nonfiction piece and $5.00 per poem/photograph/piece of art.


Email your submissions/questions to  Please use "[name] submissions - [genre]" as your subject line.  Send submissions either as a Microsoft Word attachment or as plain inline text.


We are no longer accepting snail mail submissions.
