Submissions

Kosmeo exists to encourage women artists to share and express their faith through creative works. We publish short works of fiction and non-fiction, as well as poetry, music, visual art, and more. 
Each of our issues is based on a scriptural theme, so when you submit, please include a brief note explaining how your work relates to the theme. See themes here.

Submission Guidelines

Prose

1-2 previously unpublished essays, articles, or short stories under 5000 words each, in an attached Word document

Poems

1-3 previously unpublished poems, any style or length, in an attached Word document

Music

Send 1-2 songs. If you wish to share your song as a free download, send it as an mp3 file; if you do not wish to do so, please send your song as a Soundcloud file. 

Artwork

Please send a photo of your original artwork as a JPEG file. 

Other

If you have some other creative work not listed here that you would like to share, please send us a query letter. 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please notify us as soon as possible if your work is accepted elsewhere. We are still tweaking our submissions process, so we ask for your patience! We will get back with you as soon as we can. 

Send all submissions to Jodi@kosmeomag.com. Please include a cover letter that explains how your work relates to the theme you have chosen. Please also include a brief third-person bio and a photo of yourself (JPEG if possible) for the author’s corner.
