Vagabonds is currently calling for submissions! We’re a Houston-based, non-profit magazine seeking dedicated artists and writers. Send your work in to have a chance at being published! We accept Poetry, Short Stories, Editorials, Creative Non-Fiction, Photography, Digital Artwork, Playwrights, Traditional Artwork, and much more (If you have something specific, please just let us know and we’d discuss it further). I have placed an excerpt of our submission guidelines below:

Photographs and Artwork: We do accept digital artwork and photographs; however we are not a journal that is printed in color. Any images sent to our anthology must be in Black and White in order to be printed. Please note that we are working with a publishing space of 6x9 and would appreciate it if the images could fit that paper space. If not, images will be scaled down if necessary. If the image cannot be scaled down and it does not meet our paper size we cannot place it in the anthology.

Short Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction: We have limited space and cannot afford to publish larger fiction pieces. We are looking for short scenes and flash fiction for the most part. If submitting please note that our word limit is 2000 words per submission.

Poetry: Contributors can submit up to three poems that do not extend over five pages. Please note that we are working with a 6x9 paper size and would prefer all submissions fit into that space. If your poem does not fit the space and you get chosen, we will ask you briefly if the work can be changed. If not, or no answer is received we will not be able to publish the work. All forms of poetry are accepted!

Playwrights: We are accepting a short scene from a play or short excerpt from a film script. We ask that it does not extend over 5 pages.

All written work must be submitted in single spaced format, 12-14pt size, and in a readable font.

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you. Our deadline is August 16, 2013, and you can send all submissions to this email: If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email me! Have an awesome day!
