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.




We are so excited to share our Spring 2024 Issue 59.1 with you. Featuring the work of 36 incredible contributors, this is one you will remember long past the final page. Free shipping to all US addresses. For international orders, please contact us at puertodelsoljournal@gmail.com.

Please be aware that our staff are not on site from May 12th to August 15th. If you place on order during this time, it will not be shipped until we return in August. We thank you for your patience. We will excitedly process summer orders as soon as possible. Any concerns can be directed to the email address above.
