Now in our 16th year of publication, 3rd Wednesday is an independent quarterly journal of literary and visual arts. We read submissions blindly and we publish the best material we can find regardless of the artist’s level of experience. In past issues we have published luminaries like Ted Kooser, Ron Koertge, Marge Piercy and Dan Gerber beside many lesser known and new poets, writers, and artists.

There are many ways you can enjoy 3rd Wednesday. You can subscribe to receive notices when a new poem is posted, you can subscribe to the print edition, you can download digital issues for free. Individual printed copies are available at a nominal price through Amazon.com.

3rd Wednesday is a token paying market that is published both in print and online. Contributors within the U. S. receive one print copy of the magazine.

We accept submissions of poetry and prose only through our Submittable account. Registration at Submittable is free. Before you submit, please read our submission guidelines by clicking the appropriate menu item above. You’ll find a link to Submittable at the bottom of each page.
