WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS.
We are working on updating our submission process. We plan to open for submission again in May 2021, so please check back then.
Please note that submission of work to Random Sample gives us the right to publish the work on this website and in future anthologies if we choose. Writers and artists retain copyright over their works and are welcome to publish elsewhere three months after publication on Random Sample as long as Random Sample is cited as the original publisher.
We regret that we are not able to pay writers at this time. We do, however, support our authors with thoughtful editing, promoting their work and other achievements, and by nominating for Best of the Net, the Pushcart Prize, and other literary awards.
If possible, please report Random Sample’s submission data to Duotrope. It is an indispensable tool for writers and publishers alike, and we hope to bring it full circle.
