EARTHEN LAMP JOURNAL

ELJ is a literary e-journal published three times year. We publish fiction (short stories, novel extracts, translations), creative non-fiction, a little bit of poetry, book reviews and interviews. Each issue is based on a theme. Yes, we accept unsolicited submissions.

OUR MISSION

Our philosophy is simple. If it's well written, interesting, and relevant, publish it. ELJ aims to publish the best writing from established as well as new authors. Since we do three issues a year, and slots are limited, we would obviously like to include only the best, so do make sure that you send us the very best you have.

note

The next issue will be 'Potpourri'. The deadline is January 15, 2015.
