Submission Guidelines


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 blog 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 due: October 1st, 2018

Publication: November, 2018


Field Notes

We are now accepting submissions on a rolling basis for our new blogging space, Field Notes, which will be updated with new content bi-weekly.


Submission Process

To submit work to Cordella Magazine, please send your documents to us through submittable. Cordella is created by a small band of volunteers. Please have patience- it may take us quite awhile to get back to you!

You are welcome to contact us with any questions.
