Pilgrimage welcomes previously unpublished creative nonfiction, fiction, translation, and poetry year-round via Submittable during our open calls.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 2018 (41.2)-Unity
“One sky, toward which we sometimes lift our eyes
tired from work: some days guessing at the weather
of our lives, some days giving thanks for a love
that loves you back, sometimes praising a mother
who knew how to give, or forgiving a father
who couldn't give what you wanted.”
—“One Today” by Richard Blanco
For our next issue, we are reaching out for unity. Send us writing that brings us together, that speaks of healing, that continues to call for resistance. It can be a soft touch or a stern voice that reminds us of the struggle, that challenges the injustice of our turbulent times, or what captures connection with our streets, towns, communities, and natural world. Take us past the inspirational poster quotes with your poetry, fiction, nonfiction, translations, experimental forms, or writing that speaks and welcomes us all.
Closes January 12, 2018.
