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.

The effort made by this journal is extraordinary. Most journals take months to respond. This tells me someone is dedicated and making a great effort to spread literary writings. It is gratifying. Thank you Onkar.
Thank you, Raymond. Your words keep on inspiring me to constantly work to improve The Literary Yard.
Now, in the world of web hosting, there are many things for you to consider.
For instance, you have your own small company and want to continue enjoying the benefits
brought along by internet related services and lack sufficient space.
In addition to this, the plans offered by cheap web hosts also include online backup storage, website designing tools and online databases.
Hi do you guys accept manuscripts for fiction novels
Do you accept travel articles if they are literature related? I didn’t see a category for travel. Thanks
I think there is a travel category now 🙂
I like writing small articles in form of poem and this is about social evils, religion, belief and whatever we think of. ..
can you suggest me on this. How can I spread it through you to the people might be interested for these.
Dear Mr. Sharma,
I would love to submit some poetry to your fantastic journal. I have one question and would be grateful for some clarity- how long on average would a response take from your team?
Thank you in advance for your attention!
I have read some very good literary stuff in this journal. Congrats to the Chief Editor and the whole Team dedicated to Literaryyard.com
Do you have a word count max for fiction?
Max 2500 words
Hi. I would love to send my short stories to your journal.
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?
Whats your average reading period and do you respond to all submissions?
This venture is truly to be appreciated. You are creating opportunities for emerging writers.
What are your word count limits regarding fiction and creative nonfiction?
2500 words maximum
What is your usual response time?
We reply within 4 fours but can reply even before that. It all depends on the number of submissions in the pipeline. But we respond for sure.
Thanks. Perhaps you misunderstood me? I meant how long does it take before you read a submission and accept it for publication or reject it.
Last month I sent the poem Flavor of warmth and I was so thrilled to see it in your site.How long will it remain on line? How will I save it?
How many times in a year can I send my poems?
