Submission Guidelines

The Dinner Gathering reads submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual art through our Contact page. We are actively accepting submissions on a rolling basis.

We aim to respond to all submissions within ninety days. Please feel free to reach out if, after that time, you have not received a response. However, keep in mind that this is currently a one-woman show!

We encourage and welcome simultaneous submissions; please let us know if you’ve submitted simultaneously. If your piece has been accepted elsewhere, please shoot us a quick email.

Fiction and creative nonfiction should be no longer than 2500 words, in 12 point font double spaced.

This magazine is unable to pay its writers at this time.

We are not seeking poetry.

No submissions depicting graphic, gratuitous sex or violence, please.
