Submission Guidelines

Fiction/Nonfiction/Poetry

  • Email all work to Coordinator@OfRustandGlass.com
  • Please include your full name, the name of the piece, and its genre (i.e. Amelia Carter - Of Rust and Glass - Nonfiction) as the subject of the email
  • If the piece is for one of the quarterly themed editions, include the theme in the email's subject
  • Attach finished, polished piece as a Microsoft Word document (or something similar). While we will work with you on editing a piece, NEVER send rough drafts. Editors will discard anything with too many grammar/spelling issues if it seems like the author did not even bother to proofread. Let us know if grammar/spelling, or English, is difficult for you. You have a community behind you, after all.
  • Format the piece using one of the industry accepted formats (links in resources). While it should go without saying, publishers often overlook excellent writing because it is not formatted professionally. It is a vital skill to master for anyone looking to get published.
  • In the text of the email, provide both a brief synopsis of the piece and a brief biography
  • And let us know how you heard about us!

Artwork/Photography/Other

  • Email all work to Coordinator@OfRustandGlass.com
  • Please include your full name, the name of the piece, and its original medium (i.e. Amelia Carter - Of Rust and Glass - Oil on canvas) as the subject of the email
  • If the piece is for one of the quarterly themed editions, include the theme in the email's subject
  • Attach as a JPEG or similar file type.
  • For audio/video pieces, please inquire first. If you have a link to a site such as SoundCloud or YouTube, you may provide it in the body of the email.
  • In the text of the email, provide both a brief description of the piece and a brief biography
  • And let us know how you heard about us!

2020 Themes and Submission Periods

January 2020: Renaissance

This first themed issue is wide open. As long as your piece has something to do with revival, it can find a place in the pages of our first quarterly.

Released January 15th

April 2020: Voices

We want to hear your voice. Toledo’s voice. This is still an open interpretation, but let it ring genuine!

Released April 15th

July 2020: Trials

We all go through trials in life. Whether in sports, in our personal struggles, sitting in a jury, or even on the other side. What trial forged you? 

Submission Period: 4/15/2020 through 6/31/2020

 

October 2020: Triumphs

And, of course, after the trials are over, sometimes we triumph. We should revel in this, because victories don’t happen every day.
