Spacebar is currently accepting submissions for its fall issue.



For our final issue of the year, we want to look closely at the way we remember and forget. We are looking for stories that offer the intimate details of memoir – sounds, scents, touch – and show the mind moving around life. What memories, both personal and public, survive and why? When and where do they resurface? How do we revisit them? 


What happens at the borders of memory, when it crosses over into misremembering, or begins to vanish? What can we make of these losses? 

We are open to both pitches and drafts of fiction, essays, poetry, art, photography, film, music and multi-disciplinary work.

Submissions can be sent to by 1 October 2021.


  • Submissions can take the form of pitches or drafts. Pitches should be no longer than 500 words.

  • Multiple submissions are welcome, but please send all submissions in a single email.

  • If your work is accepted for submission elsewhere, please notify us immediately.

  • We aim to be a space for inclusive storytelling. All ages, races, genders and nationalities are welcome to submit. 

  • If you are a visual artist who would like to illustrate for us, please submit your portfolio. You may also submit specific pieces in response to the issue's theme.
