We have updated our submission processing system using a new online portal – submittable.com.

This new process of submission will allow for submissions to be read and responded to far more quickly than the current emailing system.

To submit, please sign up for a submittable account and send in your submission through our online portal as found on our submission guidelines page. This is the quickest and most efficient way to send us your submissions. All you’ll need to do is sign up with your name and email address.

You can also email your submissions into the system if you do not wish to create an account:

Poetry Submissions email: thelondonmagazine+36608@submissions.submittable.com

Short Fiction Submissions email: thelondonmagazine+36609@submissions.submittable.com

Nonfiction Submissions email: thelondonmagazine+36610@submissions.submittable.com

You must attach your submission to the email. This means that you will not need to set up an account, but you won’t be able to track your submission or edit it. Postal submissions will still be accepted and read.

Signing up for an account means you can make changes to your submission at any time, as well as being able to track its progress.

Please note that the change of process will not affect the way in which work is judged. Pieces of engaging, high quality writing within word limits for fiction, non-fiction and poetry are most likely to get published.

The submission email (submissions@thelondonmagazine.org) will still be active but will be primarily for submission enquiries. Any submissions sent here will be read but the response time may be longer.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at submissions@thelondonmagazine.org
