At Lover’s Eye Press, our goal is to help you share your obsessions and passions. With that in mind, we accept simultaneous submissions so you may get more of your writing and art out in the world. However, if your work is accepted elsewhere, please notify us immediately in an email that includes your name in the subject line. Unless you wish to withdraw your entire submission, please specify which parts of your submission you’d like to withdraw so we may still consider the rest.
We do not accept multiple submissions at this time. Please submit only once per submission cycle. Additionally, we do not accept previously published work, which includes anything that has appeared in print or online, whether that is another journal, a personal blog, or social media page.
For publication, Lover’s Eye Press acquires First North American Serial Rights. After publication, rights revert to author. However, we humbly ask that should the work appear in another form — and we hope it does, whether it’s an anthology, chapbook, or collection — you include credit for Lover’s Eye Press.
*IMPORTANT NOTE*: We are an inclusive publication that privileges the human experience and works to support voices that are often discriminated against and disenfranchised. We will not accept any work that promotes racism, sexism, discrimination based on one's sexual identity, ableism, or any form of hatred. Moreover, we will not accept work that depicts graphic violence or the abuse of a person or animal for sensational purposes.
If you are unsure if your work aligns with our values, please feel free to email us.
