In 2022, Islandia Journal will be published as a print quarterly. We will consider submissions on a rolling basis, meaning work will be considered for its merit and first-come, first-serve. Our first issue is scheduled for March, and so-on and so-forth. 


Islandia prioritizes publishing the work of those who call South Florida home but will consider work by those who live outside the region but whose work is connected to it in some way, shape, or form.

Non-Fiction works to considered include: Hidden Histories, Personal Essays, Reported Stories, and essays that fit somewhere in between all of this. There is a word count limit of 1,500 words. We are a print journal and space is limited.

Please let us know if this is a simultaneous submission and if your work has been accepted elsewhere prior to notification from us.

We look forward to reading your work and continuing to publish your (sub)tropical voices. 


Islandia pays $100 for personal essays and pay begins at $150 for reported stories and hidden histories, scaling up for work that requires travel time and/or archival research

We are seeking visual art related to themes of myth, folklore, history, ecology, cryptozoology, and the paranormal by artists either from Florida / the Caribbean or whose work directly engages  with the region. These images can be anything from original photography to illustrations or paintings. What's important is that they are your creation and your creation alone.

Please submit no more than five (5) images here

We relish the opportunity to consider your work and to publish your (sub)tropical voices


Islandia's pay scale for visual art ranges from $50-$250 depending on a few factors: 

-whether or not we are publishing an image which has appeared somewhere else before (instagram included) 

-the material + labor required to create the image 

-whether or not the image has been specifically commissioned by Islandia
