at Length


At Length will consider submissions in two categories–Poetry and Music–from Friday, November 1, through Friday, November 22. Please review the specific guidelines for each section below, as well as the more general guidelines that follow.

We’re interested in poems and sequences that are at least 7 single-spaced pages long. Please send a Word document or PDF to poetry(at)

At Length is open to essays, Q&A’s, and memoirs that touch on music, criticism, or even reported stories. We’re looking for pieces that writers are passionate about, on topics that speak to their individual tastes and quirks. The perfect At Length music piece is that story you needed to write that you never thought you’d ever realistically be able to find a home for. Minimum length 3,000 words. Please email as a Word doc or PDF to music(at)

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but be sure to mention it in the body of the email, and if parts of the work have already appeared in other venues, please note that as well and provide all relevant details. We will attempt to respond to all submissions within three months, and we ask that you only make one submission at a time. Submissions received outside of the November 1-November 22 window will not be considered.
