We are in the process of re-evaluating our journal and will therefore no longer be accepting submissions until further notice. Please check back in the spring of 2020 for updates.
We apologize to those who have submitted in the last six months, as we will not be able to publish your work at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding a home for your poems, plays, and stories.
Ryga welcomes submissions of previously unpublished poetry, prose and short plays that coincide with our editorial mission and follow these guidelines:
Poetry should be single-spaced. Prose and plays should be double-spaced.
A standard, readable font should be used, in 12-point type.
Each page should be numbered and include the author’s name and the title of the piece.
Prose and play manuscripts should include a word count.
Submissions by mail should include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for response and/or return of the manuscript. They should also include a brief cover letter with your contact information and a brief bio. Do not staple the manuscript.
Submissions by email should include the text pasted into the body of the email AND attached as a Word file or a Rich Text Format (.rtf) file.
Our response time will vary according to the volume of submissions. Please don’t contact us about the status of your submission unless you haven’t heard from us for six months.
If your work is accepted, Ryga buys First North American serial rights and non-exclusive WWW rights. Payment is $100.
