The writing and visual art at IthacaLit is the best work we have found from among many submissions sent our way by emerging & established writers & artists. We ask that you wander through IthacaLit: Lit with Art and land where you feel at home. Use that place to connect your work first to us and next to our readers. We publish work that brings readers home. We are searching not for distance but for connection through your voice and vision.
Please note: poetry submissions of multiple poems must be uploaded as one file.
Please submit 3-5 original, unpublished poems. We tend not to publish long or prose or epic poems. Simultaneous submissions accepted, but please let us know when your work has been accepted elsewhere.

We want poetry that connects readers to the journey that is our humanity. That place may simply be the connection that allows a reader to feel s/he has experienced this moment in time you've written about, a grace note that allows us to be animal, mineral and completely human. 

We value the work we publish & regret that we are unable to offer payment at this time. Work is chosen by the editors, who understand that good work may be rejected due to our perception of IthacaLit as a whole.
All poetry guidelines apply. However, please include a link to your high quality video of the poem(s) submitted.

Please submit 1-3 original, unpublished poems. We tend not to publish long or prose or epic poems. Simultaneous submissions accepted, but please let us know when your work has been accepted elsewhere.

Please submit artist & writer interviews or craft essays which are cohesive, clear & informative regarding the process of writing and creating visual art. Interviews must be of interest to writers and should not be vanity profiles. We're not all that concerned with knowing if the artist/writer likes cats or kangaroos.

We'll also consider short creative non-fiction that is serious or humorous but has an underlying depth in its point of view.
