Ideas. Writing. Culture.




Writers ought to be the first readers of the literary magazines they publish their work in and for this reason, Island publishes the work of subscribers, both old and new.

If you are not already a subscriber, then you can still submit work for our consideration. However, if your work is published, then your contributor's fee package will include the cost of an annual subscription.

For a small literary magazine, this is a necessary step in a long-term strategy to build circulation. This, in turn, will allow us to increase the amount we can afford to pay our writers. 

For more information on our contributor fee policy, see here.

Please include a 50-word bio with your submission. If successful, you will have the opportunity to amend this bio at the time of publication.
