Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry year-round via Submittable during our open calls. We also feature one visual artist per issue, with full color artwork on the covers and black and white artwork in the interior. Send what you think might fit, regardless of whether or not it matches an upcoming themed issue.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, provided you notify us if the work is published elsewhere. Our response time is approximately 8-12 weeks after the closing of an issue’s theme. Each prose submission should have a 6000 word limit. Please send up to six poems per submission.
We charge $3 for electronic submissions. For snail mail submissions, please include an SASE for reply only. Unused manuscripts will be recycled.

Call for Submissions:
Spring/Summer 2016 (40.1)-Injustice & Protest
“As usual you drive straight through the moment with the expected backing off of what was previously said. It is not only that confrontation is headache producing; it is also that you have a destination that doesn’t include acting like this moment isn’t inhabitable, hasn’t happened before, and the before isn’t part of the now as the night darkens and the time shortens between where we are and where we are going.”
—Claudia Rankine, Citizen
For our spring/summer issue, we are celebrating our 40th year with writing that pursues justice for the silenced masses, acts as witness against the wrongs, confronts the climate change deniers, and stands in solidarity with the movements eliciting and demanding change. Explore what unifies us, push boundaries, and challenge the imbalances in our world.
Closes April 30, 2016.
