A Plate of Pandemic accepts submissions, via Submittable, of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and art throughout the year for online publication. We believe that creativity responds to crisis in interesting and unusual ways, and we look for writing and art that convey this. While submissions need not directly address the Covid-19 pandemic, we are interested in work that says something about this moment, about life in a pandemic-inflected world, whether metaphorically or actually.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere. We do not accept children’s literature, science fiction, religious material, erotica, pornography, or grammatically-challenged writing. Prose writers may submit one work of no more than 3,500 words; poets, no more than three poems; artists (any medium) no more than three .jpegs of one work.  Please include your name and contact information on the document you submit.

Art may take any physical form -- pottery, painting, sculpture, photographs, etc.
