Pilgrimage Magazine is dedicated to serving a community of artists, writers, adventurers, naturalists, contemplatives, activists, seekers and tricksters in and beyond the American Southwest. We welcome literary nonfiction and poetry, and favor writing on themes related to soul, spirit, place, and social justice. We also excited to announce that we are now accepting fiction as well.
Each issue strives for an elegance of variation in voice and tone; work that is entirely reverential, for example, will be a tougher sell here than work that also shows the cracks, funny bones, and vital impurities of our lives as spirits-in-place. We can handle pieces as long as 6000 words, but shorter works are easier to include, due to space constraints. Submissions are read year-round; send what you think might fit, regardless of whether or not it matches an upcoming themed issue. We encourage translations and inter-lingual work, as well as original writing in English.
