General Submission Guidelines

For half a century, Puerto del Sol has been dedicated to providing a forum for inventive and fresh fiction, poetry, reviews, criticism, and (less frequently) visual art from emerging and established writers and artists. We recommend purchasing our current issue or exploring our online content to get a better idea of the kinds of work we publish. 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 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.
