Black Sun Lit accepts 100 submissions per month for digital vestiges, an online series of fragments and ephemera, and Vestiges, a thematic print journal of literature, art, and aesthetic process (submissions currently closed). Please familiarize yourself with the type of work we publish before submitting.

We  request all writers wait until they’ve heard back from us before sending additional work (we aim to reply within 3–6 months). For past contributors, please wait at least 2 years (online) or 2 issues (print) after your work last appeared before submitting to us again (unless otherwise solicited). If withdrawing only a part of a submission, e.g. a poem, we ask that writers add a note to their submission via Submittable.

Black Sun Lit reserves the right to immediately dismiss—without notification—any work which does not observe its submission guidelines.

Black Sun Lit (generally) reads submissions year-round, considers only unpublished work, and allows simultaneous submissions in the good faith that the writer promptly notifies us if their work has been accepted elsewhere. For consideration, please submit—in one file—either 1–5 works of prose (no more than 5,000 words) or up to 5 poems (no more than ten pages).digital vestiges is also open to interviews, art, and works of drama.
