All nonfiction submissions should be double-spaced. We are happy to consider long and short essays, but please note that historically it is unusual for us to publish essays longer than 6,000 words.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we ask that you notify us of this at the time of submission. Multiple submissions are not accepted and will not be read or responded to; please wait until you receive a response from us before submitting again.

All work submitted to Nonfiction section of The Journal will also be considered for publication in our monthly online essay series, The New Essay.
