Pilgrimage - Story, Place, Spirit, Witness

Artist/Writer Guidelines

Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry year-round via Submittable and snail mail. We generally feature one artist per issue with full color artwork on the covers and black and white artwork in the magazine's interior. Send what you think might fit, regardless of whether or not it matches an upcoming themed issue. Simultaneous submissions are fine, provided you notify us if the work is accepted elsewhere. Our response time is approximately 8-10 weeks after the closing of an issue’s theme.

For snail mail submissions, please include an SASE for reply only. Unused manuscripts will be recycled.

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 March 15, 2016.

Pilgrimage Magazine, published three times a year, emphasizes themes of story, spirit, witness, and place in and beyond the American Southwest.
