Scrawl Place is part visitor’s guide, part literary journal.

The audience for this publication is the guest, the visitor, the traveler, the day-tripper, the out-of-towner, and the in-towners eager to wander.

I’m looking for submissions about “places in the places” where you live or where you’ve visited. 

Submissions should be centered on a specific, physical place – a place you would put on your travel itinerary, or a place you’d take a friend who’s visiting from out of town.

What to Submit

  • CNF, Fiction, Poetry, Hybrids

Length

  • Under 800 words per piece
  • Submit one or two pieces at a time

Title

  • Please include the name of the place in the title of your work. The more specific the place, the better.

Payment

  • $35 per piece
  • Paid within 30 days of acceptance

Where to Submit + Response Times

The average response is four weeks.
