Weekly Features

Our Weekly Features page is a living, breathing ecosystem comprising the liveliest writings from across categories that do not often find a place in the somewhat rigid litmag issue model with its constraints of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry etc. We publish humour (can be prose, poetry, drama, etc.), culture essays (literature, cinema, theatre, music, sports, art, food, and everything else under the sun), travelogues / travel writing, photo essays (should tell a story through the photographs with the written work designed to supplement the photos), craft essays, and reviews (of books, films, theatre, music albums). Try us even if you cannot figure out how to categorise your work.

We are always reading here. You can find all the how-tos, yes-yes, and no-nos in our detailed guidelines, but please remember we will be occasionally updating them. So, always check before submitting.


Regular Issues (Biannual)

We publish two massive issues twice a year in April and October, full of poetry, all sorts of prose including micros, flash, fiction, CNF and essays on literature, plays and scripts, and art, photography, comics, cartoons, you name it — there is something for everyone in there. While we do recommend reading our previous issues to get a feel of how we curate our space, we don’t want you to be restricted because we are more likely to mix things up and make it exciting for the reader rather than sticking to some straightjacket formula.

We are closed. Please do not send any emails containing work for regular issues now. We will not respond. You can find all the how-tos, yes-yes, and no-nos in our detailed guidelines (to be updated later), but please remember we will be occasionally updating them. So, always check before submitting.


Wee Hooghly (Annual)

Wee Hooghly is our project dedicated to publishing work by creatives under the age of 18. Send us your ward’s creativity — don’t be shy even if it is their first! The creator of the work must be under 18 years of age and the parent or guardian should send in their work. We publish poetry, fiction, CNF, art, photography and comics.

We are closed till further announcement. You can find all the how-tos, yes-yes, and no-nos in our detailed guidelines (to be available later), but please remember we will be occasionally updating them. So, always check before submitting.
