Submissions are closed.
Ricochet Magazine showcases the work of new and established writers and artists from all over the world. When submissions are open, we accept innovative, daring and spectacular short fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, book reviews, photography and visual art. We publish two editions a year.
We look for fiction, non-fiction and memoir up to 3,000 words and book reviews up to 1,000 words. Please send us no more than 2 pieces of fiction or 3-6 poems at a time.
If you’re unsure about a topic, feel free to send us a pitch outlining your idea. We will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible with our feedback.
Send your work as a Word document to email@example.com with a short 50 word bio. The selections process can take some weeks, so be patient with us. Expect to hear back from us 3-4 weeks after the submissions closing date.
*Please don’t send us submissions outside our reading period.
Unfortunately we can’t afford to pay for submissions at this stage, as much as we would like to. What we can offer is an opportunity to share your work with a wider audience and, more importantly perhaps, editorial mentoring as needed.
If your submission is unsuccessful, we will aim to provide you with in-depth feedback as soon as we can (response time will depend on the number of submissions we receive).
The final magazine will be a downloadable PDF publication. Past editions are available for download here.
