Raspa Magazine accepts submission from January 15 through September 15 of each calendar year. We are looking for short fiction, essay, and poetry that narrates the experiences/emotions/perspectives of queer Latinos. We select 4 authors to feature along with 1 visual artist. We like to select between 1 and 2 pieces per author, so we recommend that interested authors submit more than 1 and no more than 5 pieces. We do not accept work that has been previously published in other journals online or in print. Simultaneous submission are accepted, but we do ask that you notify us if your work has been selected to print elsewhere or to withdraw your work.
Essay and short fiction should be a minimum of 1500 words and no greater than 3000 words. We usually do not place limits on poetry submissions. We are a small, but growing publication and due to out of pocket expense we can not compensate any author selected for publication. Any selected author for publication will receive a complimentary copy of the issue featuring their work. We print roughly 300 copies for distribution.
We only accept submission via email. We ask that all submissions be an attachment in pdf or word format and that it contain current contact information (First and last name, email, and mailing address). Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the last name of the author and the word "submission" in the subject line.
