We accept personal creative nonfiction that has all the sharp storytelling and beautiful language of fiction, but with the undeniable power of raw Truth. Note that creative nonfiction is separate to other forms of nonfiction we accept. Creative nonfiction is as described above, and published exclusively in quarterly issues of Into the Void, while other forms of nonfiction, such as book and movie reviews and articles that are impersonal and fact- or opinion-based, are published on a rolling basis on our website and may be submitted for consideration year-round. To find out about submitting forms of nonfiction other than creative nonfiction, select the appropriate heading from the dropdown menu beneath ‘Submissions’ above.

We accept:

  • Up to two essays of up to 5,000 words each

To submit:

We accept creative nonfiction submissions via Submittable only. Creative nonfiction is published exclusively in quarterly issues of Into the Void, and is available to read on our website and in print. Submissions are read blind and therefore must not contain any identifying information within the document itself or in the ‘Title’ section within Submittable. Creative nonfiction submissions to Issue 8 are currently being accepted until midnight EST, March 7th. Please read the general guidelines before submitting.
