The Pedestal magazine

As editors of The Pedestal Magazine, we intend to support both established and burgeoning writers. We are committed to promoting diversity and celebrating the voice of the individual.

All queries should be sent to pedmagazine@carolina.rr.com.

The Pedestal Magazine does not accept previously published work, unless specifically requested; however, we will accept simultaneous submissions, if so noted. Please inform us immediately if your submission is accepted elsewhere. Also, we do not accept submissions by direct mail, unless first queried. Neither do we accept direct email submissions, unless first queried. Please use the submission form. If you send us work, please wait for a response to your first submission before you submit again.

We are currently receiving submissions in the following areas:

Poetry: We are open to a wide variety of poetry, ranging from the highly experimental to the traditionally formal. There are no length restrictions. There is no need to query prior to submitting poetry. Submit up to six (6) poems. Feel free to submit using one form or by sending each poem in a separate form.

Pay Rate: $30 per poem

***Note: Amy Small-McKinney will be the poetry guest-editor for the June 2006 issue. Per our guidelines, she will begin accepting work on April 28, 2006.***

Fiction: We are receptive to high-quality literary fiction of all sorts, including traditional and experimental works. Genre fiction (such as science fiction, horror, mystery, and romance) is encouraged as long as it crosses or comments upon its genre and is both character-driven and psychologically acute. We are also interested in works that do not readily fall into one specific category. Please do not send more than one (1) piece of fiction at a time. There is no need to query prior to submitting fiction; however, please do not send fiction directly to the fiction editor's email, as emailed submissions will not be read.

Pay Rate: $.05 per word
Length: up to 6,000 words

Flash Fiction: We encourage submissions of shorter fiction pieces. Please do not send more than three (3) flash fiction pieces at a time.There is no need to query prior to submitting flash fiction.

Pay Rate: $.05 per word
Length: up to 1000 words

Non-Fiction: We are not currently accepting non-fiction submissions.

Pay Rate: $.05 per word
Length: up to 4,000 words

Book Reviews: We accept reviews of poetry collections, short story collections, novels, and books of non-fiction. Please query prior to submitting reviews.

Pay Rate: $.02 per word
Length: up to 1,000 words

Interviews: We are currently accepting freelance interviews. Please query prior to submitting interviews.

As mentioned above, The Pedestal Magazine does not accept previously published material, unless specifically requested. It asks for first rights to any piece its editors select. At the time of publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist; however, The Pedestal Magazine retains the right to publish the piece(s) in any subsequent issue or anthology, whether in print or online, without additional payment. Should you decide to republish the piece elsewhere, we ask that you cite The Pedestal Magazine as a place of previous publication and provide The Pedestal Magazine's web address.

We do our best to respond to submissions in 4-6 weeks. All questions pertaining to submissions should be addressed to the editor at pedmagazine@carolina.rr.com.

We will be accepting submissions according to the following schedule: Our new issues are released bimonthly on the (give or take a day or two) 21st of the month. During a month in which an issue of the magazine is released (February, April, June, August, October, and December), we will close submissions beginning a week prior to the release date and reopen submissions a week after the release date; for example, we will close submissions on August 14th and reopen them on August 28th. In addition, during the odd month (January, March, May, July, September, and November), we will close submissions for one week, from the 12th to the 19th. We will be receiving submissions at all other times. Here is a clear breakdown of our submission cycle:

Closed For Submissions During The Following Dates

January 12-19 July 12-19
February 14-28 August 14-28
March 12-19 September 12-19
