UPDATE: Wave Composition is on hiatus. We look forward to seeing you in the future!


Wave Composition is now closed for submissions. During our open reading period, we welcome creative work (poetry and prose), essays, or interviews.

Interviews: We welcome proposals for potential interviews.

Essays: Essays should be around 1,000 to 3,000 words in length (this is negotiable), and seek to take a wide view of aesthetics, focusing on experimental or avant-garde works from any period. We’re not looking for reviews, or a simple aggregation of qualities, but instead speculative and creative analysis. It is probably best to come to us with a proposal and a method first, and we’ll let you know what we think.

Creative: The best advice is to read what we publish and the types of writers we cover and go from there. No limits on what we might go for.

Submissions should be on one file with the author’s name as the title (e.g. SmithJohn.doc) and sent to wavecomposition@gmail.com. Simultaneous submissions are fine so long as you notify us if a piece gets accepted elsewhere. Although we aim to reply to all submissions, this is not always possible. If you haven’t heard back from us within three months, feel free to send us a reminder, or assume it’s safe to take your work to another place.
