Submitting Your Work to AGNI

Before submitting to AGNI

The Market List recommends you verify the market is active and accepting submissions before sending your manuscript via regular mail. You may verify a market status by either visiting their website, calling their listed phone number, or comfirming via regular mail that the market is still active before sending them your work.

To be sure your submission is appropriate for this market, we recommend you familiarize yourself with AGNI by reading a sample issue before submitting.

If you have recently submitted to AGNI or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the AGNI guidelines:

AGNI welcomes manuscripts between September 1st and May 31st. Submissions mailed in June, July, or August will be returned unread, provided sufficient return postage is included.

We encourage submissions from writers of all identities, living anywhere, published and unpublished.

We will not consider writing that has already been published in English, whether in a book, magazine, newspaper, or on an app, a website, a social media feed, or a publicly accessible online community.

We consider only work written in English or translated into English.

We have no word limits, though space is at a premium and length sometimes affects our decisions.

We do not publish genre romance, horror, mystery, or science fiction; however, we are open to writing that borrows elements from any of these.

We will consider excerpts if they read as if they were meant to stand alone.

We are interested in personal essays, think-pieces, memoir, prose poems, formal poems, blank verse, free verse, short stories, and short shorts; we do not publish academic essays or purely journalistic writing.

You can familiarize yourself with the magazine by ordering a recent print issue or by perusing the writing that appears here. This site includes selected pieces from our decades of print issues and everything we’ve published at AGNI Online since its inauguration in 2002.
