Our effort is also to focus on new books and recognise fresh literary trends. The e-journal seeks to offer a constructive platform for booklovers’, readers, writers and creative artists. Our effort is to tender platform to budding and struggling authors from all over the world.

OS is the founder and owner of the e-journal who seeks to promote the literary arts in India, especially with a mix of folk culture.


The Literary Yard invites stories, articles on literature, literary criticism, opinion articles on literature and literary trends and much more.

Send your best write-ups in a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. If you’re sending poems, DO NOT make a separate submission for each individual poem. It makes my job as an editor difficult.

No need to send a cover letter, but a kind email with regular/formal courtesy will do. In addition, make sure your contact information appears either in your email or in the attachment.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know as soon as any of your poems, stories, essays, reviews, critical pieces or non-fiction have been accepted elsewhere.

No previously published works.

We are currently unable to pay despite our understanding of the pain effort that goes into writing a good piece. But getting published in The Literary Yard will expose you as a writer to the world.
