“Man had constructed in the written word a new impersonal memory, which did not die and lasted as long as the material in which it was constructed.” —F. Sherwood Taylor
§.01 We are currently open to literary submissions from independent authors in the domains of prose fiction, with a particular interest in vitalistic, original, longform fiction (serials, novellas and novels) that diverge from genre convention, and nonfiction concerned with technology, aesthetics and culture, as well as audio compositions.
We would prefer submissions as-yet unpublished, but those previously published on other sites may also be accepted, provided no affiliated party raises objection to the re-publication (legal or otherwise). We do not pay, nor require payment, to accept or publish works. Submissions are free and will always remain so.
§.02 Media we publish
- Flash fiction
- Short stories
- Novellas (serialized or single-volume)
- Novels (serialized or single-volume).
- Nonfiction essays on language, writing, literary art, history, culture and aesthetics.
- Narrative-based audio projects (i.e. audiobooks/radiodramas in .wav format).
- Musical compositions (as .wav format).
- Work which has been previously published elsewhere (provided the previous publisher has no qualms concerning the re-publication).
§.03 Media we do not publish
- Derivative genre works (i.e. stories with ‘dark lords’ or ‘chosen ones,’ werewolves, zombies, etc—exceptions may apply).
- Work designed merely to shock.
- Screeds or rants.
- Works so grammatically woeful as to be illegible.
- Foreign language pieces without an accompanying English translation.
§.04 Length: Some publishers use word/page-count as a standard of evaluation; we do not, and consequently, accept works of any duration in which the task of the textual work may be accomplished, whether one page or one hundred (though not in 15 words). Our primary criterion is quality (not quantity, so no need to rush).
§.05 Formating: All submissions should be in English, formatted in .doc, .docx, or .odt, and should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If unsure if your work “fits,” look over some of the other pieces on the site before submission. If still unsure after reviewing the site, it is better to send in your piece anyways—if you have sent a manuscript and have not received a reply within a week then it was not accepted (and remember that the longer the work, the longer it will take to review).
LOGOS is a digital publication exclusively. We do not presently publish works in print.
