Lit UP, a literary magazine for the U.P., celebrates the literary community of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We are looking for fresh, new, unpublished work by writers of poetry, fiction, and essay who are influenced and shaped by this place.
We publish twice per year. Allow up to six months for a response on your submission. We do accept simultaneous submissions but ask that you let us know immediately upon acceptance to another publication.
LitUP will retain first publication rights to your work, if we choose to publish it. This means that if the work is published elsewhere in the future, the author/publisher should indicate that the work first appeared in LitUP.
