Ends on

Here are the non-fiction/essay submission guidelines:

  •  1-3 pieces of creative non-fiction/essay (10 page/3,000 word maximum as a total length of submission) 
  • Send a single file, .doc/.docx preferred. 

Include your artist statement/cover letter, a short 3rd person bio, as well as any relevant links to your website/social media. 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If your work is accepted, you agree to give The Closed Eye Open online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit The Closed Eye Open if the work is published elsewhere in the future. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
