‘We admire, respect, and are friends with writers and poets from all walks of life. However, the other side of hope exists to serve, bring together, and celebrate the refugee and immigrant communities worldwide. To help promote and showcase writing from these communities, fiction and poetry are open to refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants only. We accept non-fiction, reviews, and interview submissions by anyone as long as the subject matter sheds light on the refugee and immigrant life. Please see categories below.
The print issue will be published annually and online content periodically.
We offer £100 per published author in the print issue, and £50 per published author in the online issue. The authors we publish in print will also receive one complimentary copy of the issue in which their work appears.
All submissions are considered for either the print or the online issue, at the editors’ discretion.
Please send us your work in Word only. No online files, please.
We welcome works in English, from anywhere in the world, but please see individual categories below for eligibility.
Please submit completed, previously unpublished work only.
Simultaneous submissions are fine, just let us know if your work was accepted elsewhere.
In your cover letter, please include your name, full contact information, and a short bio. Indicate whether your submission has been simultaneously submitted elsewhere. After sending us your work, please wait for a response before submitting again.
Presently, we do not accept translations.
We will try to respond to all submissions by the end of July 2021, if not before.
After we publish your work in the other side of hope, all rights revert to our authors. Published authors do not need our permission to reprint, though we appreciate an acknowledgment of first publication.’
