La Piccioletta Barca

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

​​La Piccioletta Barca is an arts journal publishing: short stories, poetry, prose, essays, interviews, and translations.

We guarantee to have reviewed all pieces within a month of their submission, and publish within six months of their acceptance. The magazine uses the Oxford Style Guide for all formatting.

All submissions are read blind, and no weight is placed on previous publications (or lack thereof). We believe that both emerging and established writers should have equal opportunities for displaying their craft. In this vein, we are also open to accepting reprints, and ask that you inform us of where the piece has appeared previously.

We are a proud member of CLMP (Community of Literary Magazines & Presses). Our membership is a testament to the strict standards we hold with regard to the rights of our contributors, and the quality of our publication. La Piccioletta Barca has been inducted in the British Library Web Archive's cultural section, and has been recognised as one of the top 4 digital publications by the National Poetry Library (UK) in April 2020.

Note: Contributors retain all rights to their pieces.

We charge a nominal reading fee to cover submission processing fees, hosting fees and ongoing operational fees. For any questions, please contact us at:
