WHAT WE WRITE ABOUT

LitStream publishes articles, op-eds, fiction, poetry, art, cartoon strips, and other forms of art and literature. The mission is to create a platform for amateur and up-and-coming writers and artists to share their work, while creating a published portfolio of their work. Early drafts welcome. Our goal is to provide motivation for struggling writers and artists to overcome creative blocks by encouraging fast drafting. 

LitStream takes inspiration from The New Yorker in style and content. We accept: short stories, flash fiction (less than 100 words), poems, art, cartoons, other fiction, nonfiction (personal stories or social commentary), and open letters. Other forms of writing and artwork can be considered. If unsure, feel welcome to submit. Our editors will reach out to you regarding your submissions. 

All submissions will undergo a review process. As our goal for the journal is to provide a platform for amateur writers and artists to publish work quickly, we aim to provide a quick turnaround time. You will be notified of the status of your submission within 3 weeks.
