of change or transformation.
biannual, digital, multimedia journal
hotpoet has launched Equinox, a biannual digital multimedia journal that showcases poets, writers, and artists. While solstices are the extremes of the year, an equinox is equidistant, poised on the edge of one thing or another, the cusp of change or transformation. With this archetypal significance in mind, Equinox strives to explore the contemplative and motivational power of writers and artists; to celebrate how word and image
can create a world and then change it.
We invite you to send us your poems, flash fiction, flash essay, photography, and art. We look for contemplative, argumentative, globally aware, despair-resistant, and apathy-abolishing works.
Submission Periods and Publication Dates:
Fall Submission: June 21st through August 10th with a publication date of September 21st.
We accept submissions via Submittable.
Spring Submission: December 21st through February 1st with a publication date of March 21st.
You may submit up to 3 pieces for a reading fee of $5, which will be used toward ongoing programs and publications at hotpoet, and which will fund a $100 “best in show” prize for every category of work (poetry, prose, and image) in every edition of Equinox.
Fall Theme: “Change in the Weather.”
This change can be interpreted as personal, political, sociological,
or ecological. We want to explore these changes with you and look forward to reading your stories, poems, and essays as well as viewing your art and photography.
Spring Theme: To be announced.
