Literature From The Street, For The People


All submissions can be made via submittable. Extensive guidelines are there too.



What are you looking for?

We are looking for Edge. Words about The Struggle. Words about The Gutters. Everyday people. Everyday things. Working 9-5. Or 9-7. Or 24/7 because that's how it is sometimes. How to raise a kid in this. How to maintain a relationship. The balance. The dizzying. The emotions that come out. The emotions that are repressed. Where did this all come from? Your childhood tales. Your families woes. And the things that salvage. Of course it's all worth it. Because of where you came from.

What do you publish?

Flash Fiction- 300-1000 words
Short Stories- 1000-6000 words
Nonfiction- 500-6000 words
Poetry- Up to 3 poems
Manuscripts- up to 100,000 words. Primarily we are looking for Literary Fiction and Poetry Collections, but we are often surprised by what we like.

When do you publish?

We will publish as frequently as possible. This depends largely on the quality of submissions.

Do you pay?

We are saving to do so! We are a new press with a numerous running costs. As soon as we can we will give back financially to our authors.

Do you accept multiple and simultaneous submissions?

Yes to both!

What is 'Legacy'?

Legacy is a concept to get (first-time) writers their (first) publication, a place to ADVERTIZE your work, when, let's face it, literature is so highly subjective that it can be difficult to place your work because of guidelines and boxes that words don't always fit into. It is a leg-up. Something to get the ball rolling.

How does the NFT system work?

You can select 'NFT' on your art submission for a fee of $99. The StreetLit team will then use these funds to get your art on the blockchain. Unless you request otherwise, artwork will be put on the Ethereum blockchain in the StreetLit wallet. The NFT can be sent to your wallet for no additional fee. The NFT will not be listed for sale unless you request it to be. You can set the price.
