The Grief Diaries

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for your interest in The Grief Diaries. We are currently taking a brief hiatus through December. All submissions currently under consideration will be reviewed and responded to during that time, so if you are waiting to hear back about your submission, please expect a response from us soon. Thank you for your patience. We look forward to returning in December with new sections and content! 

The Grief Diaries publishes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, photography, and artwork  that relate in some way to grief, loss, or mourning. The term “grief”  is open to interpretation. We are looking for powerful, moving works of  art that speak to the incredible journey of living after we have lost. Please allow 3-5 months for us to review your submission. 

Submission size guidelines:  

Poetry: up to 6 poems
Prose: up to 3,000 words
Art/photography: up to 10 pieces 

A note on submitting previously published work: Please be advised that we are unable to accept work that has been previously published online. We are, however, able to accept work that has been previously published in print.
