Publishing Visual Narratives / Graphic Creative Nonfiction

If you are interested in publishing a creative nonfiction piece that has images or drawings of some sort (Visual Narrative), you can use this search in the Poets and Writers database for literary magazines. The searches on are good, but they still require careful reading so that you can make sure a magazine’s personality matches with your writing and that the deadlines haven’t already passed.

I encourage you to submit your work. It’s excellent experience to put your work into an editor’s hands. Keep in mind that with simultaneous submissions you must withdraw your work from other magazines if it is accepted by one. I recommend keeping close track of where you’ve sent your work using an Excel spreadsheet.

To get a taste of these literary magazines, consider buying a back issue or seeing if the Auraria Library (or your local academic library) subscribes.

Don’t forget that UCD publishes the Copper Nickel and has been known to take some student work. I’m not sure of the immediate status of the magazine’s production after the passing of Jake Adam York, but know that in the future they will continue to publish it.

Good luck!
