5Q accepts previously unpublished work. If you wish to submit to a particular set of guest editors, be sure to send your submission by the end of the month of that guest editor announcement, otherwise, your work will move to the next set of editors for consideration. Guest editors are announced on our site and social media at the beginning of February, May, August, and November.
By all means, submit elsewhere what you’ve submitted to us, but please let us know if elsewhere is quicker than we are at responding. If we do publish your work, you retain full rights to it, though we do ask that you give us a shout if it appears elsewhere in the future.
Update: With so much love and support, we closed our doors in 2016. You can read about our decision on VIDA right here.
Thank you for your support!
