The Leaf~Land team looks forward to discovering the next new voice in literature. 

We specialize in character-centered explorations of the human condition. 

Our dedicated team is passionate about great fiction, and we work closely with our authors to create the very best books.

Our debut novel was awarded Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2015, the Bronze Medal for Historical Fiction 2017 by the Independent Publisher Book Awards, and was short-listed for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize.

Leaf~Land Journal is seeking unpretentious contemporary short fiction, essays, poetry, photography, and illustration for our arts and culture magazine.

Submissions must not exceed 3,000 words in length.

Multiple submissions are accepted, but please withdraw your submission if your work is accepted elsewhere.
