New Open Calls for Authors, Poets, and Artists

Sunspot Lit just opened its new calls for all lengths of poetry, prose, and art.

The journal offers an Editor’s Prize of $15 for each digital edition and an Editor’s Prize of $50 for the annual print edition. Artwork selected for a digital or print cover will be paid $20. Visit to download digital editions for free.

They welcome prose from flash fiction and poetry to stories and essays, including scripts and screenplays, up to 49,000 words. Genre categories are accepted along with literary works. Poetry can be up to 1,250 lines. Translations welcome. Please note the word count in your cover letter. 

One piece per submission (except flash, poetry, or art). Use the correct form according to the length of your prose and poetry. Works longer than allowed by the form you select will be declined unread.

The Fast Flux options offer a one-week turnaround for short prose and art. Poets and longform prose receive a two-week turnaround, with most responses being sent within one week.  

All submissions must be unpublished (except on a personal blog). Simultaneous submissions welcome. Submit as many times as you like. 

Note that the longest prose and poetry works are open for shorter periods of time. Be sure to check the deadlines for the type of work you’d like to submit to get your pieces considered for the next edition.

All submissions must be sent through the journal’s Submittable page.
