Saint Augustine’s Magazine
Among Augustine’s many contributions to the world, he is the patron saint of brewers, printers, and sore eyes so send us your best. While respecting how far our University has come, the focus of Saint Augustine’s Magazine is on works of resilience. Like Saint Augustine of Hippo, we also believe in the power of redemption so the work we accept must be grounded within the experiences of the human condition.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable and encouraged.
For poetry, there is no need to withdraw your submission unless multiple poems have been placed elsewhere. You always have the option to decline a contract. If you feel you must notify us, please send us a note.
Please do not submit work that has been published in print.
We plan to build the online issues and launch into hard copies of the magazine once a year. As work is accepted, it may be published online prior to print publication.
We are currently on a hiatus from submissions while we rebuild some of what we lost due to the COVID-19 virus. We can never replace those we lost over the last few years. At this time, we are planning for submissions to be open January 1 – October 31, 2023 (closed November and December). We reserve the right to close submissions from time to time as we catch up on reading submissions.
We anticipate a quick response time initially though our response times may be as long as 6 months, and occasionally may be as long as 7-8 months. Fiction currently has a longer turnaround time than poetry. Please feel free to query after 6 months by sending us a note.
When you submit your work, we take that as an indication you’re interested in
Saint Augustine’s Magazine and our work, so we will add your email to our mailing list. We send a monthly newsletter, and once in a while an extra email, but we do our best not to overload in-boxes, and of course you are free to unsubscribe at any time.
If your work is accepted for publication, please refrain from submitting again for a year.
Each submission can contain up to three poems.
For Visual Art
We are open to visual art by students, alumni, staff and faculty of Saint Augustine’s University.
Rights and Payment
We cannot offer cash payment at this time. This is something
we would like to build up to. At this time, payment for accepted
work is one copy of the journal.
