Memoir Magazine is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons regardless of race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and disability. All writers are encouraged to submit.
Word. Sound. Power.
Because pictures tell stories as well as words, Memoir welcomes submissions of visual artwork, (including photography, illustrations and word art) and sound projects (audible projects, podcasts, spoken word), as well as short form memoir and Creative Nonfiction essays, interviews and book reviews.
Essays should be under 3,000 words.
WORD: Personal Essays, Interviews, Reviews
We are proud to be humans and citizens of the world. It’s a broad category, we know. But life is broad and nobody gets out alive. That’s why we read memoir. We aim to be inclusive. This is not an intellectual or political magazine, because we feel that if you are breathing in these changing times, you already are a political condition. Therefore, all true (and creatively true) stories are welcome regardless of the subject matter, educational level or achievement or sexual orientation of the author.
We want real stories. We want to feel something and we want to share that feeling with the world. Send us your blood, your sweat, your laughter, and your tears.
We encouraged the exchange of alternative points of view traditionally overlooked by mainstream media.
SOUND: Audible projects, podcasts, video, and spoken word
POWER: Art, Photography and Illustration
At Memoir Magazine, we believe readers should feast with their eyes first and foremost. To this end, we will welcome young innovative artists, photographers, and graphic designers and photographers and new media creators who are storytellers to submit their works for consideration.
Note: Response time can vary from a few days to a few months. Please allow three months before sending submission status queries. We appreciate your patience.
Short, sweet and infrequent! Stay up-to-date with curated content, links to book reviews, interviews, craft essays, contest and submission announcements, and other excellent resources for memoir writers! All for FREE!
