** PLEASE NOTE : We have received 800 submissions in August (we are so grateful and  overjoyed; thank you so much!), and allowing fee-free submissions beyond this requires a Submittable upgrade which is futile with just a few days remaining in this month. We will be open to submissions again on September 1- both regular, as well as for our annual fee-free Jane Lumley Prize for Poetry- and very much hope that you will share your work with us. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience, understanding, and enthusiastic support of Hermeneutic Chaos. **

Thank you for considering Hermeneutic Chaos as a home for your work!

Hermeneutic Chaos publishes six online editions in a year, in the months of January, March, May, July, September and November. It also publishes up to ten chapbooks every year through its press. 

We welcome submissions by authors from diverse backgrounds and  literary preferences. We admire all forms of experimental, hybrid and avant-garde literature, collaborative writings, visual and graphic outpourings-anything that literature is capable of. 

Please note that while we accept simultaneous submissions, we do not accept work that has been previously published. If you wish to know more about the kind of work that we publish, please visit the current and previous issues on our website.

Please submit multiple poetry/prose in one document. We request you not to submit more than once in the same category at a time. However, we do encourage multiple submissions across categories.
