Call for Submissions


“He had to go very close to see that it was an old man, a very old man, lying face down in the mud, who, in spite of his tremendous efforts, couldn’t get up, impeded by his enormous wings.”
–Gabriel Garcia Marquez

There can be magic in the mundane, the important thing is to never turn a blind eye towards it.

This month Chicago Literati is on a search for the best fabulist fiction, art, photography, essays and poetry to be publish in our special issue dedicated to magical realism.

Fiction is in very high demand, as is original art, so don’t be shy. We’ve done away with our reading fee so you can submit to us as you wish, but please donate to us so we can help feed our writers and editors!

This issue runs from December 1st through December 22nd.
