Welcome to NiftyLit! We are a tech-enabled literary magazine and publishing company, focused on creating a more equitable publishing ecosystem. Check out our pledge and learn more about on-blockchain publishing by visiting  NiftyLit.io. If you're curious to learn more about our publishing model ahead of submitting, don't hesitate to reach out! We are happy to send you more resources, and/ or hop on a call. 

As we build out our magazine, please also follow us on Twitter and Instagram for news and updates, and join our growing community on Discord! On Discord, you can engage directly with our staff and other writers, learn more about crypto and NFTs, and keep up to date with announcements about our publishing model and our launch.

Like most magazines, NiftyLit will take the rights to the first-time, electronic publication. If you are selected for publication, we will be in touch with you to discuss other parameters pertaining to our revenue model, with the goal of getting you paid (yay!), and which may (almost certainly) include pairing your writing with an illustrator for original artwork, minting your writing as an NFT collection, and distributing your work via an NFT-marketplace. 

IMPORTANT: We will not accept emailed submissions, with the exception of submissions from writers with accessibility issues or who do not have a Submittable account. If you feel you fall into this category, please email us at submissions@niftylit.io and we will gladly consider your work.

Sending you a big, warm welcome to our community! Thank you for supporting us as we grow. Please feel free to reach out to info@niftylit.io with any questions, or for more information.

*By submitting your work, you agree to the terms of use. Please take the time to look them over.

Break out the nostalgia! 

NiftyLit is seeking free submissions across all genres (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, flash) for a special 80's themed issue entitled "NiftyLit Mix Tape." The guidelines for this issue are broad--anything 80s or 80s adjacent is welcomed--but perhaps the most important guideline  (besides kindness) is that we want this issue to be FUN. So break out your skates, cassette players, rainbow shades and let's roll!!! 


Please read our additional guidelines below:

NiftyLit accepts original work that has not been previously published (including on your personal blog or website) in the categories of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry.

  • For fiction, please send us pieces up to 7,500 words.
  • For nonfiction, please send us essays and memoir up to 7,500 words. Nonfiction that includes research or veers toward reportage is accepted as well, but please do cite your sources/references.
  • For poetry, please send up to 6 poems; please format and submit as a single document.
  • For flash, please send us flash fiction and essays, up to 3 pieces, up to 1,000 words each (please format and submit as a single document).
  • Please do not send us full length manuscripts.
  • One submission per writer at a time, please.
  • NiftyLit does accept simultaneous subs, but please do let us know promptly if your work has been accepted for publication elsewhere, in which case, we will offer you a big congratulations on having your work accepted! (Even though we will also be sad to not get the chance to publish your work).
  • NiftyLit will take the rights to the first-time, electronic publication. If you are selected for publication, we will be in touch with you to discuss other parameters pertaining to our revenue model, with the goal of getting you paid (yay!), and which will include pairing your writing with a cover artist for original artwork, minting your writing as an NFT collection, and distributing your work via an NFT-marketplace.
  • IMPORTANT: While submissions are free, if you are unable to use Submittable for any reason, please email us at submissions@niftylit.io and we will gladly consider your work.
  • Do double space your work, preferably with a 12-point, serif font. Single-spaced poetry is okay, and experimental forms of font, line spacing, etc. are also fine by us if that’s the direction your writing hearts and minds take you.
  • .doc and .docx files are preferred.
  • Do not send us anything resembling hate speech or promoting bigotry or violence. We are passionate about building a community of creativity and kindness. Further terms are linked below in the terms of use, which you agree to by submitting your work.
  • We are delighted to read your work, and will give each submission our full attention. As such, it does take time for us to respond to everything. We thank you in advance for your patience. We are so grateful for the opportunity to read your work.

We're hella stoked to read your work!

We've had a lot of interest from writers and creators seeking to publish work with us that falls outside of our regular, genre-based categories. Here's your chance! Have a book you're considering publishing as an NFT? Essay collection? Graphic Novel? Photo-album? 

NiftyLit accepts original work that has not been previously published (including on your personal blog or website). Caveat: if you are a writer,  agent, or publisher who wants to reprint previously published work as NFTs, and it is within the rights and bounds of any existing publishing agreements to do so, we will work with creators and/ or their representation on a case-by-case basis. 

Before submitting, please read our additional guidelines below:

  • For this category, please do not send us full length manuscripts. If you're pitching us on a full length project, please send a sample, no greater than 10 pages. 
  • One submission per writer at a time, please.
  • NiftyLit does accept simultaneous subs, but please do let us know promptly if your work has been accepted for publication elsewhere, in which case, we will offer you a big congratulations on having your work accepted! (Even though we will also be sad to not get the chance to publish your work).

NiftyLit accepts original work that has not been previously published (including on your personal blog or website) in the categories of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. In the future, we hope to open to more categories/ genres…please have patience with us while we ramp-up our staff, and therefore our capacity, to read more of your wonderful work!

So, what are we looking for? The NiftyLit Team is passionate about creating a community of writers whose words speak to a variety of experiences, backgrounds, and sentiments, with emphasis on emerging writers from underrepresented, underserved, and marginalized communities.

NiftyLit will publish exceptional, thought-provoking work that not only investigates humanity, but seeks to advance a peaceful, nonviolent world, free of harmful or prejudicial barriers. NiftyLit recognizes the labor writers and artists put forth in creating such valuable work and we stand committed to amplifying writer’s voices and championing writing as a form of human expression, while exploring new, technology-enabled mechanisms for publishing and community engagement. We also feel strongly that every writer should be able to submit equitably and, as such, we do not require submission fees.

  • Please do not send us full length manuscripts.
