Amsterdam Scriptum is now a paying market. We will pay $10 on publication. Payment is by Amazon gift certificate (Amazon.com has international offices).
Writers are invited to submit quality work, which will be featured on the website for two months. Being featured on our website makes you a published writer.
International submissions are welcome.
Submit your writing as follows:
* Paste your submission into the
body of an email. Do not attach
At the present
time, we are not accepting art
Do not deluge us with submissions!
Send only one short piece of writing*,
not more than 1200 words. Make it your very best. We welcome and
prefer flash fiction (ultra short pieces). We prefer to receive your
original work, but will accept quality reprints. Please
mention where the work originally was published.
*Poets, take note: Please, please do not send a vast number of poems. You may send several poems, provided the total for your submitted work is not more than 1200 words. Ignore this and you will be rejected without notice.
Check to make certain that spelling, grammar and punctuation are correct. Stay within the word limit. We only accept submissions written in English.
Submit either fiction or non-fiction. It may be a poem, short story, memoir or essay. All genres and styles will be considered, except work that we deem objectionable. Many literary journals do not accept genre writing (mysteries, science fiction, etc.). We do not go along with this snobbism. Our criterion is good writing.
We only accept email submissions.
We will try to respond to submissions within six weeks, but it can take up to three months. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt within a week. Please nudge us if you haven't received a receipt or heard back within six weeks.
If your work is rejected, please realize we are not rejecting you personally. Try, try again. If your work is not a good fit for Amsterdam Scriptum, we will sometimes recommend another market.
*Let us know if you would like to receive editorial comments. (We can't promise we'll find the time, but will try to do this if you ask.)
