Who doesn’t love Entropy? We use it here at Tell Tell internally when we’re submitting our own work out, we check it out for clients, and we suggest it in all our resources. It’s a frickin’ literary staple at this point, so when we heard Entropy was closing down, we all cried. For real. Actual tears. And then we got scared. Where would we go for submission calls? (Seriously, I think my own personal IP address is listed at least 20 billion times on their website’s backend…)
So we wanted to honor their legacy and take up the torch by continuing the quarterly WHERE TO SUBMIT posts. We’ll be posting 4x a year, and we’ll be including categories that can help you find places you’re really excited about. We’re also allowing magazines, presses, journals, residencies, and fellowships to offer fee waivers so that BIPOC and minority groups can get the support they need.
We are also covering $200 in submission fees yearly to authors who need support. So if you’re looking to submit but cannot cover the fees, email firstname.lastname@example.org with FEE SUPPORT in the subject line. Please include where you’re submitting, how much it costs, and your PayPal account. We will cover up to two fees per person per year.
How to get on the new WHERE TO SUBMIT list?
To get on the list, please fill out the form HERE. You’ll be asked to format your call for submissions in a special way so we can easily share your info when the time comes.

What if I have another opportunity?
There’s a section where you can add details on other opportunities.
What if I miss Entropy?
I know. I know. 🙁
What if I hate your list?
Please direct all hatemail to the trash bin. We’re just people tryin’ to do human stuff, so please don’t be mean to us.
