GENERAL SUBMISSIONS

phren-Z
is a quarterly online magazine celebrating the community of Santa Cruz writers. We are interested in seeing your best work: surprise us, delight us, make us shed a tear.

We accept and read submissions year-round from all emerging and published writers 18 years and older from Santa Cruz County ONLY. phren-Z accepts previously published work, as long as you hold the copyright. Simultaneous submissions are accepted: just let us know as soon as possible if a piece we are considering has been accepted elsewhere.

Poetry – submit up to three poems. Submit all poems in a single document, formatted the way you’d like them to appear.

Fiction – submit a short story or self-contained novel excerpt up to 3,000 words. Double-spaced. For flash fiction under 500 words, submit up to three stories in a single document.

Nonfiction – submit personal essays, writing tips, reviews of books and films. We’re particularly interested in pieces that highlight writing and life in Santa Cruz—and the intersection between the two. Maximum length is 3,000 words, double-spaced.

Plays & Monologues - Up to ten pages. Standard format.

Publication Dates:

  • Winter 2013 - Feb 15
