Metonym Journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

NOTE: We are nearing our maximum number of submissions. Because we are a small staff, once we hit our submission max, we CANNOT accept any more submissions. In order to help alleviate the final rush, we kindly request that you refrain from submitting if also submitting elsewhere.

EXCEPTION: If you are a William Jessup University student and you are unable to submit because our max has been reached, please email your piece to with your JESSUP email account. Our editors will manually add your submission to our workload. If you are not a Jessup student, we will not consider your work.

Submissions must be previously unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions will be considered as long as we are notified immediately if the piece is accepted elsewhere.

Work that will be considered from an author includes:

  • 1-6 poems, each under two pages long
  • Fiction or creative non-fiction up to 2,000 words
  • 1-4 pieces of original, sophisticated, and complete artwork
  • 1-5 original photographs

Our current response time varies and will be longer if your work is under serious consideration, but acceptance and rejection notifications will generally be sent out by the end of December each calendar year. Please be patient! We are a small, hard-working staff and we want to give every piece the time it deserves. 

If you are accepted, we will send you a free copy of the finished journal in Spring.
