From the Editor

Sequestrum publishes short fiction, nonfiction, and poetry on a rolling basis. We average 2,500+ readers a month, keep our archives open at pay-what-you-can subscriptions, are a paying market, and pair all our publications with stunning visual arts created by outside artists or our staff. Our contributors range from award-winning novelists and poets (with other works featured in publications including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Glimmer Train, The Kenyon Review, many other university periodicals, and Best American Anthologies) to emerging voices and first-time writers. Our Editor’s Reprint Award and New Writer Awards are held annually with prizes for both poetry and fiction. General submissions are open year-round.


We generally only consider prose up to 12,000 words and poetry up to 40 lines. But within those constraints, we have a wide-ranging aesthetic. From traditional to experimental, from cross-genre to genre-breaking, we publish writing that is innovative, risk-taking, and developed through a clear passion for craft.


Our Editor’s Reprint Award and New Writer Awards are held annually. Our Reprint Award is open to materials previously published in any format. The New Writer Awards are open for any writer yet to publish a book-length manuscript. In addition, we read and accept general submissions year-round, from established writers and new voices alike.
