antonym welcomes both international and simultaneous submissions. If your work is a simultaneous submission (meaning that you have submitted it to more than one publication at a time), please make note on the submission form and follow up to withdraw your submission if your work is selected for publication elsewhere. 

To submit to antonym, simply click below: 


antonym is happy to accept all manner of submissions, which are then selected and compiled in a once-monthly newsletter. Send us your: 

  • prose
  • poetry
  • essays
  • visual art
  • video art
  • music

…and anything else you create. Up to 5 submissions may be sent at a time. Please only submit one item per file (i.e. don’t submit three poems in one of your file submissions).

Since we’re just getting started, we don’t currently have rigorous guidelines for the types of submissions.


Readers will notice that every issue of antonym includes a theme. Rather than setting these prior to submission, we extract these themes from the submissions we receive. It’s a more intuitive process, but allows for a broader range of submissions. In so many ways, our contributors create the tone of the issue!
