Submissions are welcome from 01 June-01 September and from 01 December-01 March. Please follow specific genre guidelines when formatting and uploading your submission and limit your cover letter to 150 words or less. Full guidelines can be accessed by clicking on the plus sign located at the top right of each genre category listed below. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered.

Although we do accept simultaneous submissions, we do not accept work that has been previously published either in print or online.

If work is accepted for publication, Interim obtains First North American Serial Rights and, for the period of one year, Electronic Rights. After that time, copyright reverts to the author.

You will note that we do not charge reading fees. We very much hope not to change that policy going forward. With that in mind, as a potential contributor, and as someone interested enough in the journal to submit your work, please do consider donating to Interim as a way to provide the necessary financial support to keep the journal active. Donations can be arranged by emailing us at interim1944@gmail.com.

Thank you. We look forward to spending time with your work.

Please note that the per-issue price includes domestic shipping. Once we receive payment from you, we will ship your order within 2-3 business days via USPS. 




Upon payment, we will provide secure online access to the 2015 volume, featuring Ever Saskya's work, which was produced as a digital flipbook.
