Current Web Edition


Submit to our Upcoming Web Edition

Ninth Letter will be accepting submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for a special online edition to be published at ninthletter.com in Winter 2018.  Submissions will be open from January 22 to March 31.

The theme for this issue is climate. Subjected to climate change both in our localities and at a distance, how does our literature recognize and respond? Snow in Saudi Arabia. Bleached coral reefs. Bomb cyclones and a weakened polar vortex. Drought and unprecedented wildfire. Longer hurricane seasons. We hear this all around us, but what does it mean to you?
