Silver Needle Press is a literary and artistic collective that strives to foster creative community through editorial accessibility and artist involvement.  We pride ourselves on the commitment to generate opportunities for exposure for both emerging and established authors.  We are currently accepting submissions for our Fall 2018 journal issue.  Send us your previously unpublished poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, visual art, and anything in between.  We love pieces that reinvent traditional notions of genre. We are especially interested in works that showcase a degree of artistic precision that challenges our perception of the human experience. 

Silver Needle Press provides the option personalized feedback on all submissions.  Contributors will be invited to participate in an interview series regarding creative process.

Above all, we are infinitely approachable.  Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.  Please direct all inquiries to silverneedlepress@gmail.com
