Submissions are open for the first month of each quarter (i.e. Jan. 1-31, Apr. 1-30, Jul. 1-31, and Oct. 1-31).
Per quarter, we accept five pieces. These can be short fiction, flash fiction, poetry, photography, art, hybrid, book excerpts, or other formats not listed here. We will also match illustrations with written pieces. Content that has some connection with Hong Kong, however tenuous, will be favored.
No payment for submissions at this time.
Follow the classic manuscript format.
Submit written materials in Word. Submit visual materials in .jpg or any of the usual formats.
100% human-created content is preferred. If a non-human has been involved in the development of the content, please disclose this along with your submission.
Maximum word count 10,000 (but shorter is preferred).
Include content warnings as appropriate.
No submission fee: anyone can submit, but you must be a member of HKWC to be published. Artists and photographers are also encouraged to submit their work; you do not have to be a member of HKWC to have your visual artwork published.
Simultaneous submissions allowed, but please notify us if the piece has been published elsewhere. Send all submissions to hkwcmagazine [at] gmail [dot] com.
Multiple submissions allowed, but only one piece per author will be published per edition. (This does not apply to artists and photographers.)
Reprints allowed, but original pieces are preferred.
