TELL US A STORY
 

We are looking for original, unpublished fiction and poetry with strong character arcs and immersive description. Build worlds and break hearts.  

For essays, we're looking for factual, but not academic--keep the people in your story front and center. 

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please withdraw your work if it is accepted elsewhere. 

If we have rejected your work, please wait 90 days before submitting again, unless we request you to send us another piece for consideration. 

We will not respond to any work sent to our email inbox. If you are having issues with Submittable, please let us know, but do not attach your work. 

We do not accept multiple submissions in any category. 

We will try to get back to you on your submission within three months. If you have not heard from us in 90 days, you may follow up on the status of your submission with an email to drunkmonkeyseditorial@gmail.com. 

 Please note that we do not publish content with footnotes.

Please do not send us abusive content.  It does not end well for anyone involved.d 

As of 1/1/19 we offer $5 a feature. We will continue to offer this payment as long as we can afford to.

Tired of long wait times? Tired of refreshing Submittable, hoping to see "In-Progress" turn into "Acceptance"? 

For a $3.00 fee, our editorial staff will consider and respond with either an acceptance or rejection within 24 hours of receipt of your submission. 

For fiction, there is a strict word limit of 3,000 words. 
For poetry, please send only one poem at a time for consideration. 
For non-fiction, please send full articles only, no queries (word limit 5,000) 

If your work is rejected, we will give you a brief one-to-two sentence personalized feedback response. 

Here at Drunk Monkeys, we love television. It's no secret that we stan for Bojack Horseman, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, and, of course, our patron saints: the cast of Vanderpump Rules. So it only makes sense that we introduce to you our newest feature: One Perfect Epsisode.

Originally, we pitched this idea as a call for people to write about perfect episodes of otherwise terrible shows, but that is both limiting and subjective. One man's The Walking Dead is another man's Breaking Bad or something. So really, we just want to hear from you: what is an episode of a television show that you think is just the bee's knees? An episode you watch over and over again, or one that you find yourself daydreaming about while killing time at work? 

Send us up to 800 words; please, only one submission at a time. As of 1/1/19 we offer a small compensation ($5) for accepted pieces. Our standard submission guidelines apply.
