The Woven Tale Press mission is to grow the online presence of noteworthy artists and writers across the World Wide Web. We welcome unsolicited submissions. You may send us new or previously published material (as long as you still own the rights and it’s been five years since original publication date). We accept simultaneous submissions as long as we are notified immediately upon acceptance elsewhere.

Submissions are rolling. Response time, allow for 4-8 weeks.

Submit at the link below and follow links for either “poetry,”  “Creative fiction/nonfiction” or “Visual Arts.”

Please note: WTP is unable to provide complimentary print issues and/or cash payment at this time. While we do offer a print-on-demand option, WTP  finally is a digital publication–our present monetary resources must be entirely allocated towards producing an aesthetically resonate and well-edited context for your work, with the widest possible exposure online.


Any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 


Note! Poets and photographers — submit to our 2018 competitions and you will automatically be considered for the magazine. Please do not duplicate submissions. Win a chance for a stay in our WTP retreat house in the Hamptons!

  1. Hello, Sandra — I think what you do with Woven Tale Press is wonderful, and I was especially delighted to know that Kelly Garriott Waite recommended my website/blog to you. My latest post is a bit of a twist on the theme of love. Other recent posts reflect a new turn my blog has taken–a mother-daughter collaboration, possibly the first in which a ‘dialogue’ takes shape via alternating posts connected by thematic threads. I hope you’ll take a peek.

  2. I sent a submission url. I chose a post that is from 2011 because it is rather short and has a photo that goes with the story. (The image is of rain on my red-tiled roof at a house I rented in a town in the middle of Brazil’s hinterland while I served in the Peace Corps.)

    I am an artist, photographer and writer, so there are many submissions on my blog that might fit well in The Woven Tale Press. Thanks you for considering my work.

    I especially enjoy taking photographs and making art from them. Although my writing ranges from fiction to personal essays, I especially enjoy writing about my experiences in Brazil. Besides being the most rewarding episode of my life, my experiences in Brazil make for rather unique, and often humorous, stories.

  3. Sandra Tyler,
    I have recently posted a short blog article entitled The Use of Description.
    You will see it at
    If you think you can use it, I’d be happy to contribute it to your magazine.
    I believe it would be helpful for beginning writers.

  4. I’m finding it difficult to submit a short story. I don’t see anything to click on to send the story to you. Any suggestions?
