“We are not your typical literary magazine. And if you found us, there is nothing typical about you either.”
We enjoy work with rhythm, (deep, stylish, emotional, clever, and thought-provoking.)
At Oddball you will find spoken-word, slam, haiku, tanka, sestinas, villanelles, classic, academic, experimental, comics, political, graffiti, music, personal essays, recovery stories, reviews, photography, sculpture, etc. with no judgment, or division. We strive for inclusivity.
(If its art to you, it most likely is art to us.)
Send work to us via our submittable page. Place three original pieces in a single doc., doc.x, or pdf. file. Please include a 3-5 sentence bio as well. (Also, just to let you know, we are not impressed by your Pushcart nominations, and there are no judgments and first-time writers are encouraged to submit. Ed.) Please note that all accepted submissions are open to, or might be used in all of our Oddball Media platforms. For that reason, please provide your social media handles.
Also, when published, promote the hell out of your piece. Also, we do not accept simultaneous submissions. Oddball is a classy magazine and we want only exclusive work from you. If you have music videos or spoken word performances send them to us as a 3TV submission.
Oddball is publishing COVID-19 themed work every two weeks. As a result, response times for non-themed/non-timely work may take more than our standard 1-2 months. We are doing our best to hasten our selection process.
We publish daily and encourage timely submissions regarding breaking news, events, or holidays. If you have any ideas for columns, or ways to improve our content hit us up.
