There are presently no open calls for submissions.
There is no charge to submit to or publish with Leaping Clear. We are a 501(c)(3) public benefit organization that can accept your tax-deductible donations, if you choose. That will have no bearing on publication.
Leaping Clear presents work from accomplished artists who have both dedicated artistic practices and meditative or contemplative practices.
We accept original, unpublished work only. Occasionally, we publish work that has appeared elsewhere. If that’s your situation, please mention that in the cover letter space of submissions, with publication details.
Please use the cover letter space provided on the submissions form to tell us briefly--and only--about your meditation or contemplation practice.
We're not interested in any former publications, exhibitions, film festival awards, and so on. Submissions that contain this material will be discarded unread.
Submissions are read blind. Do not include your name anywhere in your uploaded file. Please read and follow specific guidelines carefully.
We ask one-time publication rights for original work; upon publication, all rights revert to artists and authors.
Our submission periods are from April 1 until May 31 and October 1 until November 30. Please submit only once during each submission period. We publish twice a year, on the March and September equinoxes, usually March 20 and September 22.
If your work has been accepted or published by Leaping Clear, please wait 18 months before submitting again.
Please use the submission form provided for your medium, follow the specific formats, and submit any text in English.
Thank you for your contemplative and artistic practices and for submitting!
