Thank you for considering Ruminate as a potential home for your work. We welcome submissions from both emerging and established writers and are looking for fiction that engages the contemplative spirit of our journal and embraces curiosity and discovery rather than resolution. 

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please add a note to your submission if you need to withdraw a piece. 

Short fiction must be previously unpublished and under 5,500 words. We currently pay contributors $20 per 400 words and in contributor copies.

To help keep our queue moving, please submit no more than once every six months and wait 3-4 months before inquiring about the status of your submission. We look forward to reading your work!
