We are happy to announce:
Tattoo Highway is back!

We are currently reading for Issue 24: Down the Rabbit Hole.
Deadline extended: September 21, 2017.

Submission Guidelines

GENERAL GUIDELINES: Interpret our themes literally or loosely, as you wish. Our tastes are eclectic. We like fresh, vivid language, and we like stories and poems that are actually about something — that acknowledge a world beyond the writer's own psyche. If they have an edge, if they provoke us to think or make us laugh, so much the better. We strongly suggest reading a previous issue or two before submitting.

While we particularly welcome poetry and short "screen-reader-friendly" prose or cross-genre pieces (1000 words or fewer), we do publish longer work if we can't live without it. (It happens!) We welcome photographs and original graphics.

All readings are "blind"; authors' names and other identifiers are removed. Writers may submit up to 5 poems, prosepoems or flash fictions, or 2 longer prose pieces. While we prefer to see work that has not been previously published, we do consider work that has appeared in small-circulation print journals. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know promptly if you place your piece elsewhere.

We're sorry, but we don't pay contributors. We don't pay ourselves either.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Email submissions to as a Rich Text Format (RTF) attachment or as plain text in the body of your message, and with TH24 in the subject line. Send graphics in .jpg format. We reserve the right to resize images.
