Writers Haven proudly awaits to receive submissions from writers around the world. We seek articles, commentaries, translations, travelogues, essays and whatever your heart desires to express, as long as it fits with our themes. We believe that the creative mind cannot be forced to write hastily so we list the themes of our upcoming issues in advance.
The Writers Haven experience should be a restful one, where the readers can take in a wonderful read with tranquility and writers are encouraged to elevate their potential. We firmly encourage new writers to build their online writing portfolio with us.
Verse Land, The Poetry Magazine (Ongoing, NO THEME)
This is an exclusive niche for poetry & sonnet submissions. Each week, we feature a poet or poetess and showcase their work. There are no themes. We develop an individual page to highlight the creative talents so we prefer 2 or more poems. Kindly refrain from submitting dark, gothic poems or sonnets whose underlying meanings indicate violence, bloodshed or torture.
Submission Essentials For Writers Haven Magazine
Article length should be more than 500 words but within the limit of 1200 words. All submissions should be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable but if the article passes the deadline and it has been accepted somewhere else, then we will not be able to dismiss it. It will be published on Writers Haven. Translations should be submitted with credits given to the original writer.
All content should be submitted within the body of the email, and no attachments will be opened. The response time is usually two weeks. The author's biography should be around 150 words and in third person. Only tasteful content will be published. Profanity, violence and anything unethical will be rejected instantly.
Email: email@example.com with the header as Submission, the name of the issue.
We ask for First Worldwide Rights and the right to archive on our website. The author retains the rights to their work. As our magazine is at its primary stage, we will pay only one author $10 via PayPal for their best story that matches with the theme and enthralls us. In the future, we plan to publish an anthology. Selected writers will be notified with a contract and royalty details.
We request writers to read their work thoroughly before submitting. Kindly do not send revisions of the same piece after acceptance again and again. We do not edit your stories thoroughly but we do reserve the right to suggest minor tweaks or grammatical or punctuation corrections.
# Issue 14- Sinister (Submissions Open- Deadline 15th December 2013)
Ghosts, ghouls, shadow people and headless creatures lurking outside windows are welcome with a warm embrace and courteous smile. Without these characters and entities our world would be boring and melancholic. We would like to end 2013 on a terrifying note so that we can appreciate the upcoming new year.
