We are currently accepting submissions for a special issue of Tiferet Journal entitled "Borders." In this issue, we will focus on breaking down walls, and crossing borders of culture, faith, gender, and spiritual beliefs to promote understanding, compassion and cross-cultural connections. 

If you'd like to become a co-publisher of Borders, we've set up a GoFundMe campaign here. 

Please take the time to read our submission guidelines below, and send us your best work! Submission window closes September 1, 2019.

TIFERET publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, interviews, and art. We look for high-quality creative work that expresses spiritual experiences and/or promotes tolerance. Our mission is to help raise individual and global consciousness, and we publish writing from a variety of religious and spiritual traditions.

We strongly urge you to read an issue of Tiferet to increase your chance of accep­tance. Order a print issue here or an online issue here.

Tiferet edi­tors are also now offer­ing man­u­script eval­u­a­tions for a rea­son­able rate. Email the edi­tors (edi­tors [at] tifer­etjour­nal [dot] com) for more details.

Fic­tion: We inter­pret the word “spir­i­tual” broadly. First, we seek well-written sto­ries, pure and sim­ple, that engage us in some small pocket of human­ity. The first page will tell us if the writer has a com­mand of story, of char­ac­ter drive, of descrip­tion, of lan­guage & syn­tax & voice. Or not. And we’re fans of imag­i­na­tion in fic­tion, so let yours emerge in the sto­ries you send us. We’re not nec­es­sar­ily inter­ested in religious-oriented sto­ries, nor are we inter­ested in ser­mons dis­guised as sto­ries or as sto­ries with overt reli­gious “messages.” NOTE: We only accept and publish previously unpublished work. Please use regular submission formatting: double spaced, an easy to read font (such as Times New Roman or Arial), and 12 point font size. Please make sure your manuscript does not exceed 3,000 words (this will often, but not always be about 12 double spaced pages). Manuscripts that are over this cap will not be read.  

Non­fic­tion: We like to pub­lish essays and inter­views that shed light on per­sonal expe­ri­ences of grap­pling with the invis­i­ble… or dif­fer­ent aspects of spir­i­tual tra­di­tions. Our read­ers like to learn about dif­fer­ent cul­tures and a writer’s unique jour­ney. Clear, con­cise writ­ing with good con­crete visual detail is required. NOTE: We only accept and publish previously unpublished work. Please use regular submission formatting: double spaced, an easy to read font (such as Times New Roman or Arial), and 12 point font size. Please make sure your manuscript does not exceed 3,000 words (this will often, but not always be about 12 double spaced pages). Manuscripts that are over this cap will not be read.  

Poetry: Tiferet receives a huge vol­ume of poetry sub­mis­sions, of which only a small per­cent­age are accepted. We look for the high­est qual­ity poems that dis­play mas­tery of con­tent and craft. Tech­ni­cal pro­fi­ciency is extremely impor­tant, along with clear expres­sion of var­i­ous aspects of the human spirit. We do not accept poetry that is self-consciously “reli­gious.” We pub­lish poems with strik­ing imagery and strong sonic impres­sion, and we look for engag­ing voices that do more than sim­ply tell a story or dis­play intel­lec­tual clev­er­ness. Emily Dick­in­son wrote, “If I feel phys­i­cally as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.” This is how the poems we pub­lish make us feel! Please submit between 3-5 poems. Send only your very best work. NOTE: We only accept and publish previously unpublished work.

 
Art and Pho­tog­ra­phy: We seek orig­i­nal art and pho­tog­ra­phy which in some way cap­tures the spir­i­tual or con­tem­pla­tive in a visual rep­re­sen­ta­tion. You must own the copy­right to your work. If it has appeared else­where we require per­mis­sion from the orig­i­nal pub­lisher for us to repro­duce it. Please sub­mit your work as a jpg Image or Omni­Page Image no smaller than 640x840 pix­els and no larger than 2400x1600.

We accept online submissions only. Hard copy submissions made through snail mail will not be considered or returned.

Please submit one story, one essay, one interview, or six poems at a time. Poems should be submitted in one document with each poem on a separate page and each page/poem titled. All submissions must be made in Word or in a Text Document.

        Please note that you should not submit a piece that includes track changes. When submitted, your word document is converted to a pdf and all track changes are revealed. Please submit a clean document that has not recorded your changes as these mark ups can be distracting while considering your piece and may affect our decision in an otherwise strong piece.

We acquire first-time North American rights in print and digital format; non-exclusive, one-time anthology rights; and the right to run the story, essay, interview, poem or art on our website, Facebook page, or through a Twitter link. After publication all other rights revert to the author and the work may be reprinted as long as appropriate acknowledgment is made to TIFERET.
Authors proof their work before print publication and will receive one complimentary copy of the print issue in which their work appears.

We look forward to reading your work!
