There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Litbreak Magazine, founded in December of 2015 by Jason Chambers and edited and published 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 We also accept unpublished novel excerpts. All work submitted must be previously unpublished.

If you are submitting an excerpt from a novel, you might want to include a BRIEF synopsis to set the scene for the reader. Novel excerpts don't have to be stand-alone pieces. A short synopsis can be an effective means to help the reader appreciate the excerpt from your novel. 

Litbreak accepts simultaneous submissions but please let us know if your work has been accepted elsewhere. Please present your submission as a Word doc. Litbreak will no longer accept PDF's. Please use 12 Point, Times New Roman font.  

We will ask for confirmation from the writer if your work is accepted. All submitters must be at least 18 years of age. You must present your own work. We will not accept work presented by an agent or other third party. The biographies of accepted writers may be edited on account of length, or to focus on purely literary experience.

We do not allow editing after submission. If you wish to re-edit your work after submission, then withdraw it and resubmit later if you wish. If you submit a group of poems, you cannot withdraw individual poems from the group but can withdraw the whole submission if you wish. We prefer to present poems in groups since that gives a better idea of the poet's vision. 

Thanks for keeping our celebration of literary diversity alive with the submission of your work!
