Litbreak Magazine, founded in December of 2015 by Jason Chambers and edited by Dennis Haritou, publishes a wide mix of literary fiction, creative nonfiction, reviews 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 We also accept unpublished novel excerpts. All work submitted must be previously unpublished. Please send your work in one singular submission under the appropriate category.
