We are currently open to unsolicited submissions of original and unpublished work.

For poetry, send up to six poems or six pages (preferably in one document).

For essays, send up to three of no more than 5,000 words (preferably in separate documents).

For book reviews, we're mainly interested in the latest poetry publications, but will also accept reviews of relevant fiction and non-fiction (for example, Ocean Vuong's On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous or Benjamin Zephaniah's autobiography). You may send as many as three, with individual word counts below 2,000 (preferably in separate documents).

Please send all submissions to littlestone.editorial@protonmail.com, and include a brief covering letter in the body of your email (not sure how to write one? Check out this article from the Poetry Society). If your writing is a good fit, we'll usually respond within three weeks. Unfortunately, we cannot enter into correspondence over or offer feedback on unsuccessful submissions.
