There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Sugared Water reads April 1 - July 1 and October 1 - January 1.
(Special edition calls may appear independent of these dates.)
We require a bio with all submissions (3rd person, 50 word limit), but your cover letter is optional. If you'd like to tell us a bit about yourself or why you chose Sugared Water for a particular submission, please do. If there's some interesting information you think we might like to know, don't be shy!
Please send us only your original works—no translations of already published works. (We will consider bi-lingual works & translations if the original is unpublished, and both the original author & translator are submitting jointly.) All work submitted to us must be previously unpublished.
Simultaneous Submissions are fine by us, but do let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere and needs to be withdrawn in part. You can take care of entire-submission withdrawals yourself via Submittable's withdraw button.
We request First North American Serial Rights. Your rights revert back to you, the author/artist, upon publication. For participation in our magazine, you will receive one contributor copy of the limited edition issue in which your work appears.
