Wax Seal Literary Magazine is an online publication of short fiction, specifically in the format of a written letter. The exchanging of handwritten letters drove the passions of people in times long gone – from love letters, to declarations of war, and everything in between. Once commonly sealed with wax, these intimate pieces were intended to be seen by the addressee alone.

Wax Seal is interested in reopening the medium of the written letter in the form of fiction. We are welcome to any and all genres; we simply want to read something that feels like it was masterfully crafted with us in mind. If you would like more information on submitting a piece, please visit our Submission Guidelines.
