    AGNI Magazine
    published at Boston University
    AGNI | About | Submission Guidelines

    Submission Guidelines
    AGNI publishes poetry, short fiction, and essays. Writers whose work has appeared in the magazine include Derek Walcott, Louise Glück, David Foster Wallace, Seamus Heaney, Jhumpa Lahiri, Ha Jin, Olga Broumas, Tom Sleigh, Jill McCorkle, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Gail Mazur, Noam Chomsky, Ilan Stavans, and Rosanna Warren. AGNI regularly features emerging writers and "among readers around the world . . . is known for publishing important new writers early in their careers, many of them translated into English for the first time" (PEN American Center). Most of what we publish is unsolicited.

    The print magazine appears twice yearly, in spring and fall. The website grows weekly with postings of new online-only fiction, poetry, essays, reviews, and interviews.

    AGNI welcomes unsolicited manuscripts between September 1st and May 31st. We adhere strictly to postmark dates, and submissions mailed outside that period will be returned unread, provided that sufficient return postage is included. AGNI’s reporting time is approximately 2-4 months.

    Each submission may be accepted for publication in AGNI or (with a writer's permission) AGNI Online. We pay $10 per printed (or printed-out) page for all accepted work ($20 minimum for the print magazine; $150 maximum for both), along with a year's subscription, and, for the print magazine, two contributor's copies and four gift copies of the issue.
    How to Submit

    Please send poetry, fiction, or nonfiction addressed to the genre editor (Fiction, Poetry, or Nonfiction). Translations and essays are welcomed.

    Please send no more than one story, one essay, or five poems at a time. Note that for prose we have no word limits, but generally the longer a piece is, the better it needs to be to justify taking up so much space in the magazine. We will consider novel excerpts provided that they are cohesive enough to stand alone.

    Please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) if you would like AGNI to return your submission. Envelopes that are too small or have insufficient postage for a manuscript’s return will get our response, but the manuscript will be recycled. If you do not require the return of your manuscript and would like to be notified by email, please indicate clearly an email address where we may contact you (and skip the SASE).

    Before submitting, please familiarize yourself with AGNI by ordering a copy of a recent print issue or by perusing the work that appears online. This site includes selected pieces from the latest print AGNIs (e.g., 63 and 64), current web-only work, and archived fiction, poetry, and nonfiction from both AGNI and AGNI Online.

    [imga=left]http://www.bu.edu/agni/graphics/hp-icon.gif[/imga]Please Note

    WE DO NOT READ EMAILED SUBMISSIONS; please send your manuscript to our mailing address (see below).

    Simultaneous submissions are acceptable and encouraged, but please notify us immediately if the work we are considering has been accepted elsewhere.

    Please do not send submissions to AGNI between June 1st and August 31st; manuscripts received during this time will be returned UNREAD provided sufficient return postage is included. These dates do not apply to subscribers, whose work the editors will read year-round.

    While we endeavor to deal with each submission quickly and fairly, we cannot, due to the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, accept responsibility for your manuscript. Do not send us your only copy.

    [imga=left]http://www.bu.edu/agni/graphics/hp-icon.gif[/imga]Where to Send

    Submissions should be mailed to the genre editor (Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction) at:

    AGNI Magazine
    Boston University
    236 Bay State Road
    Boston, MA 02215
