Crack the Spine

Crack the Spine Literary Magazine loves the written word. Some might say we're in love with the written word. But that's just a silly rumor. We seek to publish diverse and sharp literary works, including flash fiction, micro-fiction, poetry, short stories, personal essays, and book reviews. We don't care if it's four words or four thousand words, if it's charged with artistry, we want to publish it. Given the choice, we will always select madness over method.

Crack the Spine publishes material on our website once a week. Works published online are automatically eligible to be selected for later publication in our print magazine and/or ebooks. Print materials will be published on a quarterly basis. If you're interested in submitting to Crack the Spine, review our submission guidelines.
