Submission for Issue 6 are now open

We're looking for submissions for our sixth issue, published on 1 August 2015. There is no "theme" as yet, but we're seeking prose, poetry and articles with a raw, urban theme. Submissions close on 18 July 2015, and we will notify successful contributors shortly afterwards.

Please read our Submissions Policy before submitting work to us. Your piece of work may well be fantastic, but it probably won't be right for The Literary Commune and we'd be unable to publish it.

Thanks in advance for your interest. We're all looking forward to reading your submissions, even the ones we cannot publish.

A note about Twitter

We generally post up-to-date information on Twitter, and you might note that we don't seem to follow many people. Mainly, on Twitter we follow authors we've published or are due to publish, and venues/locations/outlets where you can find copies of The Literary Commune. Please don't be offended if you follow us and we don't follow you back. Our Twitter guy, Neil, still reviews the feeds of everyone who follows us on a regular basis, to see what's happening in the wider world of writing. It just makes it easier for us to instantly see tweets from writers we've published and venues who promote us if we don't follow everyone.
