How to submit your work
Ducts is temporarily on hiatus.
Please check with us again later.
Use our Submissions Manager
Spend a few minutes reviewing our guidelines below. Then when you are ready, visit out Submissions Manager page to create a submission account and upload your work. Don’t forget to include your bio in the “Comments” box! You can also use the manager to withdraw any submissions if they have been accepted elsewhere.
Payment and rights
We pay each author $20 per accepted submission. We retain exclusive rights for 6 months after publication (meaning that the work cannot be published elsewhere). After the 6 months are up, you may publish your work anywhere you like, although your piece will remain archived indefinitely in our back issues at ducts.org. If your piece is later reprinted, we respectfully ask that you include an acknowledgment of first publication in Ducts. Please note that we only accept original, previously unpublished submissions.
