The editors of Emrys Journal invite submissions of unpublished fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.

Emrys Journal 35th Anniversary Issue Theme: Laughter

This year we've been thinking a lot about humor. The frightening, surreal humor of Charles Simic, the biting humor of Z.Z. Packer. Gentle humor. Dark humor. Satire. Farce. Jokes that help you forget your problems, and jokes that help you face them. Comedy that is married to tragedy. Send us your best humorous work (whether or not it’s “ha-ha funny”). 

"Make them laugh, and while their mouths are open, pour truth in."--Harold Clurman


We are pleased to have published works of the highest quality from both emerging and established writers. Before submitting, please familiarize yourself with the style of work found in previous issues of Emrys Journal. You may purchase a sample journal (our choice) for $8, shipping included.
