After a six-month hiatus Granta, one of the world’s most prestigious literary magazines, is again accepting unsolicited submissions.
Granta’s history can be traced back to 1889 when a student politics and literature magazine called The Granta was founded at Cambridge University. Since its relaunch 36 years ago, Granta has been a quarterly literary journal, with the aim of publishing the best new writing.
Granta publishes fiction, non-fiction and poetry and each now has their own submissions window.
Poetry will be considered from now until 3 November.
Fiction submissions open on 16 January and close on 15 February.
Non-fiction submissions open on 24 April and close on 24 March.
There are no strict word limits, though most prose submissions are between 3000 and 6000 words and the editors advise they are unlikely to read more than 10,000 words of any submission.
Alongside the print edition, the online new writing program publishes stories, poems, essays, interviews, animations and more from established Granta alumni as well as new voices.
All submissions will be considered for both the print and online editions (unless otherwise stipulated in the cover letter). Selection is extremely competitive and only a very small fraction of submissions will be chosen for publication. Reading recent editions of Granta will help you assess whether your work is likely to be a good match.
Writers must submit their work via Submittable and there are no reading fees. For further information visit the Granta website.
