Submission Policies

Prior Publication Policy

For licensing purposes, all submissions must be unpublished by a third party prior to submission to Junto Magazine. This enables us to guarantee that the work is original and that the right to license it to Junto Magazine currently resides with the submitter. In addition, we request that any piece submitted to Junto Magazine not be made available through personal websites, blogs, or channels prior to publication. Once a piece is published in the issue, the submitter is welcome to post it on their own sites but we ask that a line be added directing viewers to the copy published in the magazine. This allows both submitter and Junto Magazine to benefit from increased visibility.

Withdrawal Policy

At any time before a piece is reviewed by one of our editors, a piece can be withdrawn if the submitter should change their mind. However, once the editor has begun to review it, the piece will not be permitted to be withdrawn from consideration and the submitter must wait to receive either an acceptance or a rejection. If the piece has been accepted, it will not be allowed to be withdrawn. We do not offer refunds of your reviewing fee if you withdraw.

Submission Guidelines

As part of your submission, Junto Magazine requires the following files regardless of the content type. This is to ensure efficiency, as the bio and photos will be featured alongside the piece if it is selected for publication. They include:

  • A short bio of your experiences (under 250 words)
  • A head shot or original graphic (300 dpi) to represent the creator (optional)
  • The piece submitted

In addition, there are submission format guidelines dependent on the category your submission falls under. Please make sure the specific categories qualifications for your content are followed or your piece will be rejected and will need to be submitted correctly.
