Submission Guidelines

PALABRITAS, a Latinx literary magazine, was established in order to create a space for Latinx writers to showcase their work, regardless of prior publishing experience. Thus, our goal is to publish intriguing work by authors that have published before alongside others who've previously never shared their work publicly. We welcome Latinx authors of any age, background, and experience. You do NOT have to be a Harvard affiliate to submit to our publication.If you are new to sharing your work, we have a team of editors who are able to work with you to develop a draft for submission. We are a small team of editors, though, so we will unfortunately not be able to fulfill every request for help developing a draft. But we will try our best!

*Please read ALL of the information below before submitting.*

  • 5 poems, maximum 1,000 words total.
