Since launching in January of 2019, Sunspot Literary Journal has amplified diverse multinational voices. New works have been published in their original language side-by-side with English translations. Boundaries that exclude meaningful and important works have been broken by accepting extremely long-form pieces, a rarity in publishing today.
Microfiction, flash fiction, poetry, short stories, plays, scripts, literary works and well-written genre pieces up to novella length are welcome at Sunspot.
