Submit Your Story

Southern Fried Karma seeks unpublished fiction. We focus on cultivating the artistic voices of the new millennium with a Southern accent. The works we seek go beyond stereotypical depictions and illuminate the multiplicity of the Southern experience: past, present, or future, the good, the bad, and especially the unexpected.

To submit your work to us, please submit through our online portal only, no snail mail or email attachments. Include a synopsis of the project, including the word count, your personal bio, including any writing or publishing credits or history you may have, and how you heard about Southern Fried Karma Press in the cover letter of your submission. Please submit your file in a .doc or .docx (Word) or .pdf format.

The manuscript must be properly formatted as follows:

  • Set a 1″ margin on all sides
  • 12-point type
  • Times New Roman, Courier or Arial font
  • Double-space the entire text

All manuscripts should include the author’s name, email address and title in the HEADER. Include your contact information on the title page.

We look forward to reading your work and responding to your query within 2-4 weeks. Rest assured, every incoming query is being read and evaluated.
