Both Palooka and Submittable are working hard and out of our own pockets to support and promote the work of writers and artists. We look forward to seeing your work. Happy submitting!

What We're Interested In:

We're very open to all kinds of work. Feel free to send your best fiction, poetry, nonfiction, plays, graphic stories and essays, comic strips, cover artwork, and photography.

Simultaneous Submissions:

We hope you're pursuing simultaneous submissions, but please withdraw your piece as soon as possible if accepted by another magazine. If this is the case, we offer you a sturdy e-handshake and congratulations!

Multiple Submissions:

If you would like to submit to more than one category at a time, go for it! We've got nothing against writers or artists who are skilled in more than one genre and would never hinder you from proving this.

Payment:

We offer all contributors a complementary copy and several discounted copies of the issue in which their work appears, as well as constant publicity and promotion through our Facebook page (which currently has 2,062 followers), a place on the Contributors' Page, and the undying support of your hard-working editor!

Response Time:

Response time is currently a few days to a few weeks. As a writer and submitter myself, I understand how difficult it can be to wait for a decision on a submission. Palooka believes in having a fast turn-around, while still taking great pride in reading every word and giving each piece its due attention and thorough consideration. -- Jonathan Starke, Editor

Bios: 

These are read after the piece or pieces are evaluated and have no bearing on publication. While schooling and publications are interesting, truths about yourself and your life are much more interesting.

Past Contributors:

We are only looking for work by authors and artists who have not published with us yet.
