Submit to TORCH

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

Torch Literary Arts is accepting submissions for Friday Features.


Torch Literary Arts seeks original creative work by Black women writers. We are interested in work that challenges and disrupts preconceived notions of what Black women’s contemporary writing should be. Your stories and poems are valuable and necessary. Write freely and submit work you are excited to share with the world.

We accept submissions of poetry, prose/hybrid genre, and drama/screenwriting for consideration for our Friday Feature. Thanks to our partners and individual donors, all selected features are paid upon publication. Visit our submission page for guidelines.

TORCH LITERARY ARTS is a nonprofit organization established to publish and promote creative writing by Black women. We publish contemporary writing by experienced and emerging writers alike. TORCH has featured work by Colleen J. McElroy, Tayari Jones, Sharon Bridgforth, Crystal Wilkinson, Patricia Smith, Elizabeth Alexander, Natasha Trethewey, and others. Programs include the Wildfire Reading Series, workshops, and retreats. Subscribe to our e-newsletter to receive future updates and announcements.
