PANK is open, PANK loves you. 

  • Please put all the work you are now submitting into ONE SINGLE FILE.
  • Thanks for your excellent work!

We're looking for chapbooks that won't quit. We want to see everything. We're publishing work we can't put down. For poetry send us up to 40 pages and for fiction, creative nonfiction and hybrid work send us up to 55 pages. If your work pushes a few pages over, send it anyway. Flash fiction collections. A handful of short stories. That not quite novella or mini collection of essays. Anything goes.

[PANK] Magazine is a literary magazine fostering access to innovative poetry and prose, publishing the brightest and most promising writers for the most adventurous readers. Up country, to the end of the road, to a far shore and the edge of things, to a place of amalgamation and unplumbed depths, a place inhabited by contradiction, quirk and startling anomaly, where the known is made and unmade, and where unimagined futures are born, PANK. 

Submit 3-5 Poems, Flash Pieces, Art Pieces, Comic Pages, Up to 3500 Words of Prose, Up to 2 Minutes of Spoken Word Recording, or whatever else we've missed.

Selections will be published the first Friday of every month.

Please include a short bio, including your age and grade.


[PANK is looking for work for the [PANK] Daily feature on our website! We are now] accepting reviews of books of all genres, author interviews, craft essays, and special features.

Book review submissions should always include a .jpeg of the book’s cover as a separate attachment. Additionally, please preface the review essay with the basic publication information (name of publisher, year) which we will eventually include below the cover image and above your contributor byline.

Interviews should include an image of some kind (the book or books’ cover(s), a photo of the interview subject, artwork installation, etc.) as well as a short intro contextualizing the conversation and the author/artist’s work. Interviewer and interviewee’s names should be bolded when we get to the q/a portion, and after first reference (i.e. Sanda Bullock and Keanu Reeves) the bolded identifiers would reduce to initials (SB and KR).

Please include a short contributor bio in the cover letter to be published with accepted pieces.

Thank you for your interest in contributing to our ever-expanding [PANK] blog and participating in our community!
