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.”
Please follow our regular submission formatting: double spaced, an easy to read font (such as Times New Roman or Ariel), 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). Submissions should be no more than 3,000 words. Manuscripts that are over this cap will not be read.
NOTE: We only accept and publish previously unpublished work.
