We appreciate the opportunity to consider unsolicited essays, narrative nonfiction, journalistic dispatches, short fiction, and poems that are resonant with Noir Catcher’s aesthetics and philosophy. Our feature pieces typically range from 1,200 words to 5,000 words, while shorter work (400 – 1,000 words) appears in our front and back-of-book departments. We kindly ask that you read a few interviews at Noir Catcher before approaching us with manuscripts.

Simultaneous submissions to other publications are acceptable, so long as they are labeled as such, and we ask that you notify us if your submission needs to be withdrawn from consideration at Noir Catcher. We do our best to respond to submissions within three months.
