Antithesis Journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


ANTITHESIS

For Those Who Fall Between the Cracks.
Here at Antithesis, we are pros at contrast.
We love the written word. We love the printed image.
We crave discourse. We side-eye 'The Discourse™'.
We want visual art. We want work that’s ready for peer review.
Give us economy. Give us copia.
Give us photos and comics.
Give us fiction and 'fiction, creative-non and narrative-non' and is-this-even-fiction-what-are-your-poetry-guidelines-aah!
Maybe your work is hard to categorise. Maybe you are hard to categorise.
That's cool. We are too.
We are Antithesis, and we are here for those who fall between the cracks.

Submitting to the Journal

If you would like your work to be considered for publication in ANTITHESIS Journal, please submit it through submittable only.

While we do ask that all submissions be in line with our theme, 'Revive', we welcome different interpretations of that theme.

Submissions may take the form of:

  • Research essays between 3,000 and 5,000 words
  • Reviews (books, films, exhibitions, performances, etc.) up to 1,000 words
  • Creative writing (short fiction, creative nonfiction) up to 3,000 words
  • Poetry up to 50 lines
  • Artwork (paintings, drawings, photography, digital art, comic art, graphic narrative, etc.)

Written works should be submitted as Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) files, while artwork should be sent as 300dpi JPG or PDF files that don’t exceed 3MB. Note that artwork should be shrinkable to our 8″ tall x 5.25″ wide pages (these measurements already allow for a small border) and that graphic narrative shouldn’t exceed more than eight pages (unless it’s really, really good or you ask us very nicely).

All submissions should be accompanied by a biography (100 words maximum), and research articles should also include an abstract (300 words maximum).

Research articles will be double-blind refereed before publication. Reviews, creative writing, poetry and artwork will not be refereed. While we’re happy to consider works that have been sent to other journals, we ask you to please let us know well in advance if any works you have submitted to ANTITHESIS have been accepted elsewhere for publication.

For more information on how to submit your work, please go to the relevant submission category.
