Thank you for your interest in Foxglove!
We are currently open for submissions until Sunday 3rd October. Submissions will be read on a rolling basis, so please don’t feel that you have to leave it until the deadline!
Please follow the guidelines below. Submissions that do not respect the guidelines (including work submitted without a cover letter) will not be read.
We accept previously unpublished poetry and short/flash fiction.
Please include a cover letter addressed to me (Elizabeth Gibson, the Editor), introducing your work and outlining why you would like to be featured in Foxglove Journal.
Poetry: between three and six poems of no more than 42 lines each.
Please be aware that this site cannot always accommodate unusual formatting or concrete poetry. If your poem includes these elements, it may not ultimately appear exactly how it did in your submission. We will work together to achieve the closest possible presentation.
Fiction: 200 – 800 words per submission (for example, you could send one 800-word story or 4x 200-word flash fiction pieces).
Please only send one submission at a time (i.e. either a poetry submission or a fiction submission). We will get back to you as soon as possible, hopefully within six weeks.
Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know at once if you need to withdraw any part of your submission.
Once we have accepted your work, and you have confirmed its availability, we will consider the work as confirmed to appear in Foxglove. Please do not ask to withdraw it after this point, unless in extraordinary circumstances or for personal reasons.
Please accompany your work with your biography, written in third-person and in no more than 150 words.
We usually publish an author portrait photograph beside your biography, so please have that prepared for if you are accepted.
To submit work you can either use the form below or email grizonneATgmail.com.
We look forward to reading your work!
