Below you will find an ever-growing list of lit mags that have updated their submissions policy to reflect the acceptance of previously uncurated works (as opposed to strictly unpublished). See the history of this idea here: To add more literary magazines to the list, just comment on the original article with a link to their guidelines.
Great article and I have adopted 'Uncurated' for my art and literary journal Steel Jackdaw www.steeljackdaw.com - please add my magazine to the list :0)
Jut saw this today. Good news;
"What Stanchion is Always Looking For
Stanchion is looking for unpublished* ....
*Stories & poems previously workshopped &/or published on social media, photographs and drawings posted on Instagram and Twitter, as well as writing published on a personal blog, are now in play to be considered for publication in Stanchion.
Excellent article by Timothy Green! Please add MacQueen's Quinterly to your list of literary journals which have adopted the term "uncurated": http://www.macqueensquinterly.com/MacQSubmissions.aspx
Thanks so much!
Hi Tim, love the thinking - having just read this piece, I'v adopted "curated/uncurated" on both my personal bio and in the submission guidelines for publications from Open Shutter Press: https://openshutterpress.com Thanks, Pete Taylor.
Thank you for this excellent article, Timothy. Thank you also for initiating this positive and timely change, which I agree is well past due! I would be interested to know whether you would consider work published on the blogging platform Medium to be previously curated?
Oh, I come back to see if this page has more on the list and alas, no. It seems both editors and poets are stuck in the old paradigm.
