Call for Submissions: New Category

2018 has been an impactful year! It’s hard to believe we’re already at the halfway point. Nevertheless, this is a great time for us to pause and examine where we are in this moment. We want to thank everyone for supporting our literary journal. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the generous help of our staff, readers, contributing writers, and supporters. We’re several months away from our seven-year anniversary and this journey has been nothing short of phenomenal.

We have incurred a few changes with regards to our submission guidelines. As such, we are issuing an updated call for submissions. Contributing writers will now receive print copies of our literary journals. Additionally, we are now accepting cover art submissions.

We look forward to continuing with our efforts to bring our readers more of the literary material they enjoy. In addition to our journal, we’re also accepting requests for blog content. We’re looking for interviews, book reviews, guest posts, and author spotlights.

Visit our guidelines on Submittable for more information.

We know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from us but we are back from our brief hiatus and we are excited to share some great news with our readers. We will be releasing Volume XIX and XX of the Torrid Literature Journal before 2016 is over. Each volume contains fresh new poems, stories, and interviews. In Volume XX, the 2016 winners of our annual literary contest will be revealed.

Additionally, we will begin accepting submissions for another anthology of Christian poetry to be published on August 1, 2017 under our Gateway Literature imprint.

As we wrap up 2016 and prepare for 2017, we are issuing an updated call for submissions. Our first volume of the Torrid Literature Journal in 2017 will be a special five-year anniversary edition. Send us your best work.

Flashback Friday: Circle Circle Dot Dot

National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner. Today we’re sharing Noah R. Sebek’s short story, “Circle Circle Dot Dot”. This story first appeared in the Torrid Literature Journal Vol. X Lost.


Circle Circle Dot Dot

By Noah R. Sebek

“Are you sure that’s right?” she asked meekly.

“I think so,” he responded. “I think that’s all you really need.”

“Oh. Alright then.” She smiled, looking down at the ring on her finger. “I guess that means we’re married, then?”

“Sure looks like it.” I looked at my left hand, and then the ground. “I hope you’re happy with this, Sally.” Continue reading
