PRLog (Press Release)Oct 17, 2012Katsujinken, a Sword Arts Journal, publishes articles, comics, dojo and sensei or instructor spotlights, essays, events and competition results, interviews, journal features, the mythos behind sword arts and poetry. These inspiring, engaging and entertaining submissions usually surprise us. Often we don’t know what we’ll like until we read it and true to the nature of Zen, we remain open to new ideas and talents.

Katsujinken only requests one-time rights on successful submissions – all other rights revert to  authors upon publication. We request a six-month window prior to any | all reprints. We prefer reprints credit Katsujinken as original publisher of work, where we are the original publisher. We read previously published works, but discourage simultaneous submissions. Length is typically to 150 words for a short submission, 300 – 500 words for a mid-size submission, 500 – 1250 for a mid-size feature story, 1250-2500 for a large feature story. We rarely run anything longer than seven thousand words; there’s no minimum word length. At Katsujinken, we do not require a query letter, except for interviews; however, professional presentation is important. We do respond withing three months or less.

Reach out to us via email submit@katsujinkenmagazine.com or telephone 301-356-6552 and we’ll talk with you. Submissions should be typed using double-spacing. We do accept email submissions. For USPS and returns, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE). Poems may be single-spaced. For hard copy submissions, work will not be returned without sufficient postage and the SASE. Do not send your only copy.
