Submissions are now CLOSED for our FALL 2018 ISSUE: “TOUCH” 

Thank you to everyone who submitted work! We will be notifying all contributors of our acceptance decisions in the near future.

What can be learned about an object through touch? How do you experience the world by how it feels? Through both literal and metaphorical interpretations, we are looking for poetry, creative non-fiction prose, photos, and visual art using the theme of TOUCH. What does it mean to be touched by someone or something? How can such simple acts have such great effects? What is there left to explore in our sensory world?


Submission Guidelines:

We accept all forms and genres of creative non-fiction and visual media so long as it presents a personal narrative. We ask that contributors do not submit more than 5 pieces per issue.

Please email all submissions to chicagomemoryhouse@gmail.com with your name included in the subject line. We ask that you include writing submissions as .doc or .pdf attachments rather than pasting them into the body of the email.

If submitting photos or artwork, please send the files as .jpg or .png email attachments (high-resolution files preferred). If the pieces have titles, include them in the body of your email.

We mail two copies of the magazine to each contributor upon publication.

What we look for in written work:

  • Unique personal narratives: as a creative nonfiction publication, we want to represent a wide variety of voices and experiences.
  • Writing that captivates us: we love pieces that surprise us with innovative forms and techniques.
  • Clarity and brevity: we think a succinct story is often more impactful than a long-winded one.
  • Stories worth telling: we welcome writing that uncovers hidden meanings and teaches us something new.

    In the email subject, do we write the actual title and actual email of the sender or as you say “Title of Work-Email Address”?
