SKOO welcomes submissions across genres, including poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, plays, and visual art. We enjoy art that is challenging, experimental, timeless, and elegant.

We are not using Submittable at this time, in order to keep SKOO sustainable and to pay our contributors. Currently we offer $50 for submissions in all genres. If you sent a submission through Submittable and did not receive a response, kindly re-send via email. Please email all submissions along with a third-person bio to somekindofopening@gmail.com with "Submission" and your genre in the subject line. Previously unpublished material only—we don't consider work posted on personal blogs or social media to be published. Simultaneous submissions are great, just please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere! All rights revert back to artist upon publication.
