SUBMIT

We are accepting submissions for Issue Six until July 1, 2019. 

All submissions are read blindly. Everyone is eligible to submit, regardless of age or geographic location.

Submissions in multiple categories are encouraged. Upon acceptance, COUNTERCLOCK receives first North American publishing rights and archival rights. All rights revert back to the author upon publication. We ask that you credit us if the work is reprinted in the future. 

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. We do our very best to respond to all submissions within two weeks. We also offer expedited submissions (48-hour response time) and Feedback Corner (in-depth feedback on your work within 2-4 weeks, depending on the package selected).

We do not currently pay our contributors, but hope very much to in future issues! We are committed to keeping COUNTERCLOCK accessible and will always offer fee-free submissions. 

We look forward to reading your work!
