We are currently accepting fiction, poetry and artwork submissions for our inaugural issue. While we are primarily interested in mainstream and literary works, we will consider genre pieces if the writing meets our standard of excellence.

For fiction, please send one short story (no word count limit) or up to three pieces of flash fiction or three prose poems per submission. For poetry, submit up to four poems at a time in a single document; there is no line count limit, but any poem exceeding two pages will have a harder time getting accepted. For artwork, send up to four images of at least 300 dpi as .jpeg files at one time.

Please send only previously unpublished work, meaning work that has not appeared in print or anywhere on the web (including, but not limited to blogs, personal websites, social media sites, public discussion forums, etc). Simultaneous submissions are considered; however, please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

The Moving Force Journal will acquire First Serial Rights as well as electronic rights to archive the work indefinitely on our website. We are an online journal, but should demand and funds allow, we reserve the right to publish your work in a print issue and/or anthology. All other rights revert to the author. There is no compensation at this time beyond being one of the first to be published by an up and coming journal fueled by big dreams and even bigger ideas. We hope you’ll join us in making history.

To submit your work for consideration, please visit our online submission system.
