RESPONDING TO THE NOW.
We welcome submissions of visual art, poetry, prose, and fiction that embody the real and raw internal response to what you are experiencing now against the backdrop — or on the frontlines — of the war in Israel and Gaza. For this special issue, we will publish work in any language along with an English translation, as well as translated works and previously published works. There is no deadline, we will accept and publish work on a rolling basis.
We expect to receive artwork and writing as charged and passionate as each individual’s experience and perception of the October 7th massacre and war in Gaza. However, we just want to remind our beloved community — and those new to Write-Haus — that we are a literary and arts magazine. We will select artistic and literary works for publication, not political essays or op-eds.
We will accept fiction and non-fiction works. Each piece should be double-spaced, in Times New Roman font, and no longer than 2,000 words. Submit in Microsoft Word or Google Docs, not PDF. The name of your file should include your full name.
Poems should be single-spaced, in Times New Roman font, and Microsoft Word or Google Docs, not PDF. If you are sending multiple poems, please include them all in the same document. The name of your file should include your full name.
We are accepting visual art of any medium. Please ensure all art pieces have an image quality of at least 300 dpi with RGB coloring and include the titles, year, and medium for each artwork. Only upload using a .TIF format to ensure maximum image quality. Images should be submitted at their full resolution to allow for proper sizing in the print issue. Please ensure all visual file names include your full name.
