Submissions Call: Sonder Magazine

Writing.ie | Resources | Getting Published | Submission Opportunities


Submissions open: 1st – 30th April 2022

The submission window for Issue VI of Sonder Magazine will open April 1st-30th.

Sonder accept short stories, flash fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and artwork for the cover, all based on the theme of ODD. It’s time to embrace your inner weirdo.

This year’s theme is inspired by the winning piece of the Morning Coffee Writing Competition 2021 titled ‘A Bit Odd’, by Claire Gleeson. Claire’s piece will be published in Issue VI and is also available to read here.

Sonder especially encourage work from previously unpublished authors and writers who feel it is their time to be heard.

Sonder Magazine is all about bringing different perspectives together. Everyone is wildly and magically different, yet there is still a universality that draws us all together. We are about reflecting those differences and, ultimately, what it is that brings us together.
