Welcome to Heartbeat, an online journal that publishes new issues each month. We accept written work in the genres of poetry, fiction and non-fiction but we also have instructions on how to submit artwork. Check out our submissions page to see how you can submit your work! 

We accept rolling submissions! Anything submitted before the 1st of the month will be considered for that month's issue. We will send out emails on the status of your submission just before the issue comes out. If we do not respond, please feel free to contact us with any questions! Sometimes our email just gets bogged down. We're happy to respond to questions.

In addition to monthly issues, we also have a blog section where we will be posting about literature, events and thoughts as well as publishing shorter work submitted to us. We'd love to see your work on the blog or in the issue, so start submitting now!

A word about ads: This is a passion project, and running a high quality and beautiful website, unfortunately, isn't free. Any and all money we generate from ads is poured right back into maintaining the website and reaching as big of an audience as we can. With that said, thanks for reading!
