We are particularly interested in work that relates to a sense of spiritual life, ecology, and community, but we welcome submissions of all kinds that reflect one's unique stories. We accept poetry, short fiction, essays, memoir and other creative non-fiction, as well as visual art. We also invite proposals for interviews and featured musicians. We accept work from women and non-binary people.
Along with our quarterly magazine issues, we are looking for submissions of writing, music, and visual art for our new Field Notes space on a continual basis.
Themes and Submission Deadlines
Each issue of Cordella has a broad theme. We encourage submissions that relate to the theme on some level, but this is not a requirement for publication. Upcoming themes and deadlines are as follows:
Issue Eleven: Re/Cast, The Mental Health Issue
Submissions Closed. Publication: January, 2019
Issue Twelve: TBA
Submissions Open: January 10, 2019
Publication: Spring 2019
We are now accepting submissions on a rolling basis for our new space, Field Notes, which will be updated with content bi-weekly.
To submit work to Cordella Magazine, please send your documents to us through submittable. Cordella is created by a small band of volunteers, and unfortunately we are unable to respond personally to all incoming email or social media messages; submitting via Submittable is the best way to get your work in front of our eyes. Thank you for trusting us with your work, and thanks for your patience!
