Hi there. If you're interested in submitting your writing to Lucky Peach, we're interested in reading it. Some things to consider, though, before you do:

RESPONSE TIME
We receive a large volume of submissions. Unfortunately, we're a small operation, and are only able to contact you if we're interested in using your submission. If you have not heard from us within 8 weeks, you can assume that we were not able to use your submission.

COMPLETE ARTICLES ONLY
We will only read complete articles, not your pitches or vague ideas.

LENGTH
Is up to you.

SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS
Are okay. Just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.

COVER LETTER
Is not necessary. But you can include one if you want to. We'll probably look at it.

Art is important to us. Send us your best stuff.

As with written submissions, we can contact you only if we're interested in using your work. If you have not heard from us within 8 weeks, you can assume that we were not able to use your submission.
We don't normally accept unsolicited recipe submissions, but we're willing to be persuaded otherwise.
