Here are the general guidelines for our open reading periods:

Gigantic Sequins accepts all genres of writing. Gigantic Sequins also accepts black & white art in any medium except photography. See specific guidelines for each category below. We accept simultaneous submissions under the condition that the contributor lets us know immediately if the work has been accepted elsewhere. If you need only to withdraw a part of your submission but not the whole, detailed instructions for a partial withdraw can be found here. Proofread your work prior to submission.

Gigantic Sequins retains First Serial rights to publish the accepted material. After publication, all rights revert back to the author. We pay in one copy of the journal your work appears in.

Ends on February 15, 2017
Gigantic Sequins is a print literary arts journal whose issues come out twice a year. Twice a year, we read submissions for these issues. When our current issue debuts, we select a few pieces from the most recent past issue to publish online.

GUIDELINES
  • Please upload 3-5 previously unpublished poems in ONE FILE for our review. 
  • We highly recommend you become familiar with what we've published in the past before sending us any work. You can check out a few select works from past issues that we have archived online, or you can pick up a past issue from our online store. 
  • There is no need for a cover letter, unless you just want to say hi or tell us something cool you did recently. 
  • The poet life is a tough life, so of course we accept simultaneous submissions as long as the poet withdraws his/her work if any work is accepted elsewhere. Please do not email us to withdraw; use the Submittable system. There are instructions here on how to withdraw and also how to make a partial withdraw. 
  • Please only submit ONCE (3-5 poems) per submission period in this genre. If you hear back from us before the submission period ends, please wait until our next open period to submit again.
  • Failure to follow our guidelines may result in your submission going unread by our readers and editors... and we wouldn't want that.
