***This is our quick response category, for those who want their replies a little faster! You will hear back from us about your submission within 2 weeks (although our response time is usually much quicker, averaging 1-4 days!). Please only submit ONE piece of writing or FIVE photos/art images in this category***


Feed us:
Fiction (1 to 5,000 words)
Poetry (3-5 poems, in one document)
Nonfiction (1 to 5,000 words)
Hybrid/Experimental (no specified word count)
Art/Photography (send up to 5 images, .png or .jpg format preferred)

We also accept submissions for “The Glutton’s Digest,” a column within each issue of The Hunger, dedicated to filling the emptiness. “The Glutton’s Digest” features one piece of writing that sets the table for the work that follows. It can take the form of a traditional restaurant/food review, a recipe, an experience of eating (or not eating), or any wild experiment in food writing. We encourage weirdness; we are starving for your strange.

Please only send two submissions per genre per reading period. If your submission has been accepted elsewhere, promptly notify us by withdrawing your submission via Submittable. Only unpublished work will be considered (unpublished for us means it has not previously appeared in its entirety online or in print, including blogs and social media).
