submit your work

So you want to write with us? We're thrilled.

How do I submit?

Email us at submissions@theunorthodocs.org or fill out the submission form! If you choose to email us, please provide in your submission:

  • your name (pen names allowed)

  • contact information (this can be any contact information you’d like to include, social media handles included)

  • a short bio (who you are and what you enjoy doing in your free time)

  • a short description of why you believe your piece is #unorthodocs (here we use that to mean a little bit funky, out of the box, and bizarre).

What should I submit?

We accept any form of prose, poetry, essay, visual art, etc. and also encourage submissions in the mediums of spoken word, film, screenwriting. Responses to our writing prompts always pique our interest! If your work doesn’t fit any of these categories (or fills some hybrid/mutant/yet-to-be-named bucket), we’re more than happy to take a look at your submisson. 

 

If you would like to submit a prompt, head over to our Ideascape and select “suggest a prompt” at the bottom of the page. 

When should I submit?

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. You can submit as many pieces as you'd like!

 

Formatting?

Any font is acceptable as long as it is legible in style and size; just know that we use a consistent website font unless you explicitly state that you would like to retain the front from your submissions. 

Length?

We don’t have a hard cut off, but most of our prose entries are around 700-1000 words.

What's the deal?

Our regular writers submit one piece per month and are featured on our team page. They experiment with new writing styles, respond to our writing prompts, and workshop their work with us.

 

Interested?

Email us at submissions@theunorthodocs.org with

  • a response to one of our writing prompts

  • 3 samples of your past work (if you have some)

  • a brief message telling us who you are and why you'd like to work with us
