Sugared Water reads April 1 - July 1 and October 1 - January 1.
(Special edition calls may appear independent of these dates.)

We request a brief cover letter with all submissions. This should include your name as you wish it to appear, contact information including email address and mailing address, and a brief bio (50 words or fewer), but please include no more than five publishing credits.

Optionally, tell us a little something interesting about you. Tell us who you love to read. It's helpful if the cover letter makes up the very first page of your submission document.

Please send us only your original works—no translations of other authors. We accept simultaneous submissions, of course. All work submitted to us must be previously unpublished.

Simultaneous Submissions are fine by us, but do let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere and needs to be withdrawn.

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 a contributor copy of the issue in which your work appears.
