We’re accept­ing visu­al and writ­ten essays, reviews, short sto­ries, prose, and non­fic­tion works.
We are an adver­tis­ing-free, sub­scriber and dona­tion-fund­ed online mag­a­zine look­ing to pur­chase works from young adult writ­ers with a sense of cul­ture and counter-culture’s pro­gres­sive edge.
Sub­mis­sions via email (horn@extratone.com) are accept­ed year-round. Please attach your work in PDF or Word-com­pat­i­ble for­mat and include your byline (aliases/pen names accept­able in most cas­es,) your pre­ferred con­tact infor­ma­tion, and your desired attri­bu­tion rights.
  • Pay for one-time work is nego­tiable and your gen­eros­i­ty or for-repub­li­ca­tion works are always wel­come.
  • If you are at all con­fused about this prompt, don’t be embar­rassed to ask for clar­i­fi­ca­tion.  
  • We read and respond to all sub­mis­sions with­in thir­ty days — gen­er­al­ly much faster.
  • We encour­age sub­mis­sions from LGBTQ, Black, and His­pan­ic writ­ers.
  • We love noth­ing more than the chal­leng­ing, provoca­tive, or absurd — those which are like noth­ing we’ve ever read before. We are inde­pen­dent — we do not bite, and we treat all sub­mit­ted work with dig­ni­ty regard­less of whether or not we pub­lish it.
  • We are a close and sin­cere com­mu­ni­ty of a dozen young writ­ers like you who are inter­est­ed in your assis­tance and/or con­ver­sa­tion, and we’re always on-call.

We are anx­ious to hear from you.
