The Ofi Press Magazine

International Poetry and Literature from Mexico City

Magazine Submission Guidelines
Thank you for considering sending your work to us at The Ofi Press. We appreciate your interest very much! Please read these guidelines carefully before submitting (updated 03-07-17).
We are now open for submissions

Every two months we publish a selection of poetry, short stories, as well as non-fiction, interviews and reviews. Please only send previously unpublished work. We are now publishing our editions at Calameo: http://en.calameo.com/accounts/4739059

We publish high quality work from writers of all nationalities. We are also particularly interested in submissions from young Latin American and Mexican writers.

What We Are Looking For

Poems: All quality poems will be considered. We are however very unlikely to publish haikus. 

Short stories: Right now we are considering stories of under 1500 words on any theme.

Translations:  We are accepting translations of poetry and fiction from around the world. Please make sure that you have permission from the author to publish their work.

All submissions should include a short third-person biography of no more than fifty words and a short cover letter. Please submit no more than 6 poems or 2 short stories in your submission in an attached word document.

To get an idea of what we're looking for, please check out our current edition and archives.
Response Time

Please allow anywhere from two days to four weeks to hear a response as to whether or not your work has been accepted for publication with us. Due to the high volume of submissions that we now receive, at busy periods, the response time could be up to one month.  If you do not hear from us within one month it is likely that your email was hijacked so please resend it.

Payment

Currently we cannot afford to pay you, but this is a good opportunity for you to get publishing credit with an editorial that has a growing reputation for quality international poetry and literature.

We pride ourselves on being more that just a magazine and once you have had work published with us you become part of the Ofi community. We always try to help Ofi writers in the promotion of their literary projects through our facebook and twitter feeds. We are always open to other ideas for collaboration too!

Rights

We will acquire first time publishing rights, and all the other rights will revert back to the author or poet once published on our website. Please do acknowledge The Ofi Press if you go on to publish your work elsewhere or in a book. All works remain on our website or in our archive.

Submit

Please send your work for consideration to Jack Little at: [email protected]

We are looking forward very much to hearing from you!
