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. Submissions should be sent according to the Guidelines below.

 

Guidelines

Poetry: Please submit up to three previously unpublished pieces. Please include your name, contact information, and the titles for your poems. Attachments should be in .doc or .docx format and formatted in 12 point Times New Roman font. Please, when indenting, use your space bar, not your tab markers. All questions regarding poetry and poetry submissions should be directed to heavily@hinchasdepoesia.com.

Prose: Typically, we request that fiction submissions not exceed three thousand words. We request that submissions of micro-fiction not exceed one thousand words. Please include your name, contact information and the title of your piece(s). Attachments should be in .doc or .docx format and formatted in 12 point Times New Roman font. All questions regarding fiction and fiction submissions should be directed to heavily@hinchasdepoesia.com.

Translations: Please submit up to three previously unpublished translations alongside the work in the source language. Please include your name, contact information, and the titles for your translations; in addition, submit the name of the writer you have translated, their publisher information, and the original titles you have chosen to translate. All questions regarding translations and translation submissions should be directed to yago@hinchasdepoesia.com.

Artwork: Submit photography, mixed-media or original art. Please submit files as JPEG images at least 800 pixels along the shortest edge and no larger than 4 MB. If you are sending multiple images that collectively exceed 10MB, you may submit your work via a cloud-sharing tool such as DropBox. All questions regarding art and art submissions should be directed to jennifer@hinchasdepoesia.com.

Book Reviews: We request that reviews not exceed one thousand words, and that the subject, title, publisher, and year of publication appear clearly delineated.  All questions regarding reviews and submissions of reviews should be addressed to the respective editors.


Submissions by mail: We certainly do not want to discourage you from sending us submissions the old-fashioned way. Your local post office needs your business and we love opening 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), publications (both print and online) and where you’ve previously placed your work.
