ELKE "a little journal" publishes a range of styles and forms. 
 
Please submit previously unpublished work to editor@elkejournal.com with "[Fiction, Poetry, Non-fiction, Translations, etc.] SUBMISSION as the email's subject". All work should be included in a single .DOC/.DOCX or PDF file. Use a standard font. Enter a cover letter with a brief third-person bio in the body of the email. Please make sure your bio is a professional one.

We read year-round for online content and publish print issues when we can. We strive to respond within sixty days but may take longer. Please wait to query until four months have passed. Submissions are free, always. But we encourage you to purchase a copy of an issue. If you submit, you will recieve a 15% discount code to use when purchasing.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. If a poem is accepted elsewhere, just email us. Likewise, if you make a mistake in your cover letter or packet, do not withdraw and resubmit; instead, just let us know. Please do not send more than one submission (One piece of  prose up to 5,000 words, up to three flashes up to 750 words each, or 3-5 poems) every three months. This includes withdrawn submissions.

ELKE "a little journal" acquires First North American Serial rights and the right to archive your work online in perpetuity. If your work is subsequently published elsewhere, please mention that it first appeared in the journal. Past contributors should wait one year from the date of publication to submit again.

Expected response time 1-4 months. 

If you wish to send us submissions via snail mail you may do so.
