There are presently no open calls for submissions.
The VIDA Review is an online literary magazine publishing original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, reviews, and interviews.
We are exclusively interested in work by those often marginalized in literary spaces, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC); cis and trans women, agender, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, nonbinary, and two-spirit people; LGBQIA+ people; people with disabilities; and people living at the intersections of these identities.
We are currently not accepting submissions at this time.
All pieces should be original, and previously unpublished in any format in English.
Please send one submission at a time, and please submit only once every 6 months.
We are open to simultaneous submissions, so long as you label them as such and promptly let us know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
Please note that all submissions should be accompanied by a cover letter and brief third-person biography statement, and that (unless otherwise stated) we ask for First North American Rights to publish writing. Following publication, all rights revert back to the writer; we only ask that you credit the VIDA Review as the place your work first appeared.
Payment for those accepted will range between $40. We recognize that this is a token amount of money but hope to increase this amount in the future. Payment will be made via PayPal within 2 weeks of publication.
