*New* AI Policy
There are legitimate artistic reasons to use AI. If you submit work to us that uses AI, be sure to clearly state in your cover message/letter the following:

b) The reason(s) for AI use
Submitting work containing AI-generated material without accurately disclosing the nature and extent of this content will result in a permanent ban on submitting to us.
We publish one round of chapbooks each year through 845 Press. We are looking for innovative prose and poetry, and work that is both, or maybe neither. That thing you have tucked away in a drawer because you aren't sure what it is or where to send it: try us!
We publish chapbooks with page ranges of approximately 20 to 45 pages.
Please submit only once for this year.
We are currently close for chapbook submissions.
Prose (for the journal)
We publish prose (fiction and creative non-fiction) up to 10,000 words long. We will consider pieces longer than 10,000 words, but they need to earn their length.
We pay $20 per piece.
If your piece is longer than 1000 words, please submit only one piece. If your pieces are fewer than 1000 words each, feel free to submit several pieces at once.
We are looking for innovative short fiction from diverse voices. Our preference is for the strange, the experimental and the boundary-pushing, but we are open to a wide range of styles and voices.
Poetry (for the journal)
We accept submissions of 1-8 poems, depending on the length of the poems.
We prefer poetry submissions to be 10 pages or fewer. You can certainly send us longer submissions, particularly if you are submitting a long poem, but longer submissions need to earn their length.
We pay $20 per batch of poems we publish.
Our preference is for innovative verse that pushes the boundaries of poetry, but we are open to a wide range of styles and voices.
Please submit only once per reading period.
Reviews and Interviews (for the journal)
We do not accept reviews or interviews submitted through Moksha. If you are interested in writing a review for us or placing an interview with us, please query us first at thetemzreview[at]gmail[dot]com. We are interested in reviews of Canadian small press titles and of works in translation, and in interviews with the authors of this kind of work.
Simultaneous Submissions Welcome!
We welcome simultaneous submissions, provided you notify us and/or withdraw a piece that is accepted for publication elsewhere.
