Ruminate receives over 5,000 general submissions and contest submissions each year. We can't publish every story or poem, and we seek not to be a solution for all but rather a sign for all—a sign that points us toward hospitality, welcome, and care for one another's stories. We are particularly excited about sharing stories, poems, and art from voices that aren't often heard.
Due to a high volume of Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction General Submissions we are behind in our response time. We are working hard to get caught up, and we appreciate your patience!
