The Swamp Literary Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Swamp publishes work that evokes a sense of place, which, for The Swamp, is broadly defined. We look forward to reading work that we can inhabit, no matter its geography. We do give preference to the southern gothic, to poems and stories wrapped in a heavy coat of humidity. With that said, we seek to publish all work that surprises us with new territory, with characters and landscapes we don't get the chance often enough to read about. 

***They're currently no open calls for submissions at this time. Our staff is working through a backlog of submissions and will reopen soon.
