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

March 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.

Submission Period: 1/1/2020 through 1/31/2020

June 2020: Home

What does home mean to you? Where is it? Who is there with you? Who is not? Be as creative as you can. Home is where you make it, but it can also feel so far away. 

Submission Period: 4/1/2020 through 4/30/2020

September 2020: Celebration

With the holidays coming up, and some having already passed us by, this quarterly will focus on the ways we show appreciation for the things in our lives. 

Submission Period: 7/1/2020 through 7/31/2020

December 2020: Rust and Glass

We know what Of Rust and Glass means to us, but what do those two words invoke in you? To end our first year, we want to see your artistic interpretations.
