We welcome submissions from everyone, regardless of experience! You are welcome to submit both writing and art, and you may submit multiple pieces. All work is welcome!

We accept short stories, poems, memoirs, and any form of creative writing. We do not accept school essays or newspaper articles. Please send works no more than 1,200 words, which is a little less than 3 pages single-spaced.


  • Create your submission in Google Docs. The document title should be the same as the title of  your piece.
  • Share your submission with abwindowseat@gmail.com. Give us permission to edit.
  • Include the following information in the text box where it says “add a note”
    1. Title of piece: Untitled is acceptable.
    2. Name of author: This name is how you will be printed in the magazine. So, if your name is Janthea Doe but you go by Jane, please write “Jane Doe”.
    3. Sharing Permission: Are you okay having your work used for advertising by Window Seat? This means it may be posted on the website or used for promotional material. First and last name will be given for credit. You can type yes or no.
  •  Repeat for all writing submissions. Make each submission its own document.

Thank you for your submission! We look forwards to seeing your creations.

If you would like some inspiration, we’re encouraging submissions written in other languages with English translations.
