Submitting Your Work to Zyzzyva

Before submitting to Zyzzyva

The Market List recommends you verify the market is active and accepting submissions before sending your manuscript via regular mail. You may verify a market status by either visiting their website, calling their listed phone number, or confirming via regular mail that the market is still active before sending them your work.

To be sure your submission is appropriate for this market, we recommend you familiarize yourself with Zyzzyva by reading a sample issue before submitting.

If you have recently submitted to Zyzzyva or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the Zyzzyva guidelines:

Please submit only one story or one nonfiction piece at a time, and no more than five poems at a time. You may submit work as many times as you wish, but we ask that you wait to hear back from us before submitting further work for consideration. There is no maximum page count for submissions, and we are not currently seeking work about any particular theme or topic; that said, reading recent issues is perhaps the best way to develop a sense for the length and quality we are looking for in submissions. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for a reply, and be sure to include all your contact information, including phone number and e-mail address. We do accept simultaneous submissions, though we certainly appreciate the courtesy of exclusive submissions. Please do let us know immediately if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
