GRIFFEL aims to publish the finest in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama and art.

We welcome submissions every March, June, September and December. Our typical response time is four months, though we may take longer on occasion. We evaluate submissions written in English, Norwegian, Swedish and Danish. We encourage submissions from writers of all identities, living anywhere, published and unpublished.

Authors retain rights to their work from the time of publication in GRIFFEL.

Submitted work must be previously unpublished, both in print and online.

GRIFFEL is a small and independently run magazine, so unfortunately we cannot offer payment to our writers at this stage - though we do hope to do so as the publication grows.

Fiction

Submissions should be no more than forty double-spaced pages.

Literary translations
