Please read all of the guidelines before submitting.
PLEASE NOTE: Do simultaneously submit your work to us to other journals! Due to the immense number of submissions we now receive daily we are no longer able to send rejection emails. If you have not received an acceptance email from us in three months then, I’m sorry, the Cabinet has passed on your submission this time. We genuinely apologise for the inconvenience, and indeed coldness, of this approach but it has become necessary in order to give each submission the proper time and consideration it deserves. We hope you understand.
The Cabinet of Heed is a sentient multi-drawered piece of furniture that is eternally ravenous. The only way to sate The Cabinet’s hunger is to feed it great writing.
Current Cabinet Status: HUNGRY! SUBMIT NOW!
The Cabinet is RAVENOUS for submissions. You can prevent a terrifying furniture-based rampage by feeding it quirky, off-centre fiction or poetry that might nourish, astound and inspire! Please note: All well-crafted work will be considered, quirky or not.
The Cabinet of Heed is a free online literary journal that publishes excellent short stories, poetry and flash fiction. Please take a few moments to read some of the work on this site to get an idea of the work we generally publish.
Please put your work’s title in the subject line of the email. Don’t forget to include the word count.
The maximum word length for short stories is 4000 words. No minimum.
No more than four poems please.
Attachments must be doc or docx files (no pdf files!) or you can paste your piece into the body of the email. If you wish you may include a short bio in the third person (50 words max. please) with your submission.
