Gigantic Sequins is print-based and biannual. Our black & white journal is known for its quality writing and its unique design/aesthetic. We accept work from unpublished writers in addition to those who have an already established voice. We enjoy publishing writers who have their hands in various sorts of figurative creative cookie jars. We are interested in cultivating an artistic community over a widespread area through our uniquely designed journal and are known for promoting our past as well as our current contributors' achievements.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do not list your previous accomplishments/publications in the cover letter area. Please send us your best work. Please become familiar with our magazine by at least browsing our website's select archived pieces we have there before submitting. Please only send an email inquiry about the status of your submission if four months have passed. Please alert us ASAP if a simultaneous submission has been accepted elsewhere. Please love literature and art and support the small, independent magazines/journals where you want to see you work published.
