Litbreak Magazine, founded in December of 2015 by Jason Chambers and edited by Dennis Haritou, publishes a wide mix of literary fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry. We aim to present as diverse a mix as possible of geographic area, gender and ethnicity. We also accept unpublished novel excerpts. All work submitted must be previously unpublished.

Submissions may be of any length up to ten thousand words. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. All submitters must be at least 18 years of age. 

While we aspire to present the most diverse of literary approaches possible, we insist upon a demonstration of craft. Submissions need to be as publish-ready as possible. 

A brief biography and your photo is requested but not required. Publishing and biographical references may be edited down if your work is accepted. We do not allow editing after submission. If you wish to edit your document after submission, you can withdraw it and re-submit later. No graphics are accepted with your submission. Just words please. Regrettably, we no longer offer remuneration. Litbreak publishes monthly.

If we accept your submission, your confirmation of our acceptance is now required.  We encourage dialogue with our writers. 

Submissions are open as of June 1st, 2019.
