Please consider submitting your poetry and prose to Monday Night, our biannual online literary journal. We read every submission we receive that is submitted in accordance with our guidelines. The vast majority of the work we publish is unsolicited. So we want to hear from you!

At this time, we do not accept submissions of manuscripts to Monday Night Press. The guidelines below are for the journal only.

If you have questions, feel free to contact the editors: editors(at)mondaynightlit(dot)com.
