Send us your ossified anecdotes,
and your most rancid alphabets.
Send us translations or pieces
that rely on dialects, nuance,
and idiomatic panache.
Hinchas publishes three times a year barring unforseen circumstances. Typically we only read submissions 6-8 weeks before each publication. Prose/poetry/review submissions should be sent in a .DOC format and formatted in 12 point Times New Roman font. Artwork should be sent according to the Guidelines below.
Submit your work by mail.

Please include a cover letter telling us the title(s) of submitted work, current contact information (full name, mailing address, telephone number(s), e-mail address, and publications, both print and online, where you’ve previously placed your work.
