**General submissions have been temporarily halted so we can catch up. We'll have them back as soon as we get the backlog under control. In the meantime, feature submissions are still active.**

General Submission Guidelines

 

For over half a century, Puerto del Sol has been dedicated to provide a forum for inventive and fresh prose, poetry, reviews, criticism, and artwork; and we strive to publish voices from emerging and established writers and artists. Most importantly, we pride ourselves in not following a standardized aesthetic—instead, we seek work that presents authenticity, sincerity, and respect. We recommend reading our most current issue or works from our online journal to get a sense of the content we have published recently. Thank you for your interest in our magazine, and we look forward to reading your work.

Puerto del Sol accepts submissions year round but only reads from August to April. Response times vary. Please give us at least 6-8 months to respond due to the large number of submissions we receive.

Please do not submit more than once per year. While we do accept simultaneous submissions, please notify us promptly should your work be accepted elsewhere. We do not consider previously published work.




Please be aware that the office staff are not on site from June 15-August 15. If you place on order during this time, it will not be shipped until August 15. We thank you for your patience in waiting to order or waiting for us to ship. 

Puerto del Sol is seeking work which engages with the theme of Touch. An embrace, a fist, a long-distance call. Something to be kept or lost or held in that in-between space of nostalgia. Midas walking a world ruled by money. A skin-starved rhesus macaque clinging to his soft, inanimate mother. We want work which grapples with the need, the scarcity, the fear of this thing we call touch. Send us prose and poetry which shrinks from a hand or reaches out for something missing. Show us all that touch can mean and all that it cannot.

This themed feature will appear as part of our Spring 2023 print issue. We look forward to reading your work.


Poetry Submissions: Please send up to 5 poems in one file (.docx or .doc files are preferred).


All submitted work should be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please add a note on Submittable right away if your work is accepted elsewhere.

The Black Voices Series believes that to fight cultural silencing and erasure there needs to be more spaces that provide visibility for black-authored work. We want your poems, your essays, your fiction, and your multi-modal work. We thank you for trusting us with your voices. #blackvoicesmatter #blacklivesmatter #wearevisible 

¡Compañerxs, estamos felices de anunciar el relanzamiento de Voz! 

Durante más de medio siglo, Puerto del Sol se ha dedicado a proporcionar un foro creativo y fresco para la ficción, la poesía, la crítica y el arte; nos esforzamos por publicar las voces de escritores y artistas, tanto emergentes como establecidos. Lo más importante es que nos enorgullecemos de no seguir una estética estandarizada; en cambio, buscamos trabajos que presenten autenticidad, sinceridad y respeto. Recomendamos leer nuestro número más actual o trabajos de nuestra revista en línea para tener una idea del contenido que hemos publicado recientemente. Gracias por su interés en nuestra revista y esperamos leer su trabajo.

Puerto del Sol acepta propuestas de colaboración durante todo el año, pero solo lee de agosto a abril. Los tiempos de respuesta varían. Danos al menos 6 meses para responder debido a la gran cantidad de envíos que recibimos.

No envíe más de una vez al año. Si bien aceptamos envíos simultáneos, notifíquenos de inmediato si su trabajo es aceptado en otro lugar. No consideramos trabajos publicados anteriormente.


Directrices para el envío:

LAS PRESENTACIONES DE POESÍA se limitan a cinco (5) poemas. Incluya todos los poemas en un documento (se prefieren .docx y .doc). Enumere los títulos de sus poemas en el cuadro "Title" de nuestro formulario de envío.

LAS PRESENTACIONES DE PROSA se limitan a un (1) trabajo autónomo (sin extractos), incluida la prosa flash. Toda la prosa debe escribirse en fuente de 12 puntos, Times New Roman (o cualquier otro tipo de letra serif) y a doble interlineado. Indique si su envío es ficción, no ficción o autoficción.
