Literary Yard invites stories, poems, essays and articles on literature, criticism and literary trends, among other things.

Send your best write-ups in a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. Do not send PDFs. If you’re sending poems, DO NOT make a separate submission for each poem. It makes our job as editors cumbersome.

No need to send a cover letter, but we deserve a kind email with regular/formal courtesy.

Please state your pen name clearly in the email so that it could be published along as the author. In addition, make sure your contact information appears either in your email or in the attachment.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know as soon as any of your poems, stories, essays, reviews, critical pieces or non-fiction are accepted elsewhere.

No previously published works.

We are currently unable to pay. However, we understand that it takes a lot of effort to write a good piece. The copyright for articles published will remain with the author. But in the succeeding publication, do not forget to credit us.

Good luck.  We look forward to reading you.

    Do you accept work that has been posted on a personal blog with private/restricted access (not accessible to search engines and cannot be viewed by the public)?
    Or is it okay if I remove the post before sending to you?
