submission guidelines for harvest

ALL submissions have now closed.


harvest published thoughtful and considered non-fiction, fiction, poetry and art. Our word limits were generous, our art lavish, and our pieces most likely not the kind of thing you could dash off the night before (although we’re not saying it didn’t happen!)

You didn’t have to have a publication history as long as your arm, or leg, to submit to harvest. That’s not what we were about. We weren’t after your school projects, your embittered diatribes to former lovers, your dear-diary entries or your embittered diatribes to former lovers, your dear-diary entries or your angst-filled poetry, either. We wanted and received well-drafted pieces that went through a little pruning before they reached our hands.

harvest was Melbourne’s most handsome literary magazine, breaking through in 2007 to publish new writing and fresh design.

Thank you.
