On the wings of history.

Currently accepting submissions for our summer/fall volume.

Following the first volume theme of “Taking Flight” we’d like to now explore aviation in the eyes of history. For Vol. 2 we’re taking submissions on the theme of “Wings of History” and will accept literal or loose interpretations on the theme if we feel a composition comes together with our other pieces. Please see additional submission information below.

We will only be accepting submissions via Submittable in the future. Please use the button below to navigate to our page there. Overall, we’re looking for new and old voices, and stories from across the world, so don’t worry about language conventions, but the work must be in English. There is no fee to submit your work and we plan to always keep it that way.

We will, however, pay you for your work! Authors and artists will be paid via PayPal, so you must have an account, otherwise we cannot publish your work. Please see the list below for our payments.

  • Short fiction and creative non-fiction (under 5,000 words), $10 (USD)

  • Poetry, $5 (USD)

  • Original artwork $5-$10 (USD) (size-dependent)

  • Serials (depends)

We are currently only accepting novel blurbs through our new project, The Scan. Please see information regarding The Scan on this website via the top navigation.

Please note that we received an overwhelming amount of poetry for our inaugural issue but we’d like to keep our focus on short fiction and non-fiction and will be accepting less poetry for the upcoming volume. This means that your poetry will need to fit the theme extremely well to be considered.

Submit here (navigation to Submittable).

If you have any questions about our submission guidelines feel free to email us at turbulenceandcoffee@gmail.com. We strive to respond to all emails within one week and all submissions within one month, but we are a small team; please be patient and only send one bump email. If you have not heard from us in two months regarding your submission please assume we’ll be passing for this volume.
