Submissions are CLOSED for our SPRING 2019 ISSUE: “GLOW”. Thank you all for submitting and we look forward to launching in the next few months!

The glow of dying embers, of the full moon, of a kind person. Glow-ups, glow-sticks, afterglows—the list goes on. Through both literal and metaphorical interpretations, we are looking for poetry, creative non-fiction prose, photos, and visual art related to the theme of GLOW. What does it mean to glow? Is a glow the promise of something new or a reminder of something old? What can be found in the presence of a glow (and what can’t be)?


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”?
