Call for Submissions

thesnailmagazine is now ready to accept submissions from writers.
We are looking longish pieces (3,000 - 7,500 words) that are sharp, incisive, illuminating, and grip the readers attention.

What we would like to see:
Investigative Journalism
Literary Journalism
True Life Stories
Immersion Reportage

What we would not be interested in:
Personal Essays

For those of you who write short fiction and poetry, by sheer happenstance there is a literary magazine called The Snail Mail Review at which would be happy to receive submissions. thesnailmagazine is only interested in nonfiction.

All submission should be sent to either as an attachment or in the body of the email. A response will be swift and a rejection should not be taken to be a comment on the quality of your work but only that it does not meet our present needs.

It is hoped to issue thesnailmagazine No 1 in September and then at three monthly intervals, with a view to becoming bi-monthly as quickly as possible.

When the magazine is ready for the press a campaign will be started on to collect subscriptions. An announcement will be made nearer the time.

Posts on creative nonfiction and the progress of the magazine will be posted below. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

Thank you
Ron Francis
