There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Even if you have submitted to Fence in the past, it is a great idea to review submission guidelines. Please sign up for our email newsletter to receive future updates. 

It is most especially desirable that you consider subscribing to Fence. Increasingly it's tough for an independent print literary journal to support activities; we actually have something to offer you, and it's a literary publication, which we hope you want to read. Thank you.


Fence maintains a venue, in print, aural, and digital forms, for writing that speaks across genre, sociocultural niche and ideological boundary as accessibly as it can, such that Fence publishes largely from its unsolicited submissions and is committed to the literature and art of queer writers and writers of color.

Fence encourages collective appreciation of variousness by inhering collectively outside of the constraints of opinion, trend, and market.
