Call for Editors

Flare is currently looking to expand its editorial board and is open to applications for editorial positions. Interested applicants of any background are encouraged to apply––we look for a genuine love of the arts. As an editor, you will have the opportunity to work with distinguished writers and artists from all 50 US states and over six dozen countries on every continent. We have previously published work from a state poet laureate, published novelists, university professors, and writers and artists whose work has been exhibited internationally and printed in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and more. Beyond these distinctions, we also have the chance to uplift artists of all backgrounds who may have gotten the courage to submit their work for the first time. The one unifying aspect within our community is a common love for the arts, and we hope you will join us! 

Send a short biography describing your interest and qualifications to us at flarejournal@gmail.com. From there, we will set up further communication. 

Submit

Submit your poetry, prose, art, and photography for publication- we're looking for work that is honest, personal, and riveting. Anyone, regardless of age or geographic location, is eligible to submit. We currently do not pay contributors- however, we hope to in the future! There is no submission fee. Simultaneous submissions are accepted.

Keep in mind that Flare caters to a wide audience of all ages. 

Submit to flarejournal@gmail.com

Title the document with the name of the submission and your name.

In the email, include a biography and a description of the work.

Subject line should be category_full name

Poetry or Prose:

Upon acceptance, Flare receives North American publishing rights and archival rights. All rights revert to the author after publication. Submissions should be in 12 pt Times New Roman and .pdf or .docx format. There is no limit to the number of pieces you submit; we only ask that the word count not exceed 3,000.

Art or Photography:

Send us your art or photography to be published in .jpeg or .png format. Any medium is welcome! There is no limit to the number of pieces you submit.

Acceptance decisions for Issue Eight will be released in Summer 2022. 

We look forward to reading your submission!

Themed Dossiers

Beginning in Issue Eight, Flare will feature themed dossiers (a collection of work surrounding a particular concept) within each issue to provide more submission opportunities, help artists generate new work, and spark conversations on particular topics. Submitting work themed around the dossier may increase chances of acceptance.

In honor of Spring, Issue Eight's dossier is themed around birds. Subject matter could involve migration, flight, conservation––we encourage participants to go outside, observe the birds that surround your community, and write or create what comes to mind.
