Words in Light (WIL) is an independent publishing project paying writers for their work and promoting diverse voices. WIL publishes longform fiction and nonfiction alongside video, audio, photography, illustration, and infographics, and every feature is a unique collaboration between writers, editors, and visual artists. It’s cheap for anyone to submit — the absolute minimum. We receive just 91¢ per unsolicited manuscript, or you can email us a query for free. For the current base pay rate, as well as for submission guidelines, view our Submittable page. Or just dive in and start reading.

We're giving back to the literary community. We're telling immersive stories. Join us.
