About Us

Founded in December 2018 by Juliette Sebock, Nightingale & Sparrow is a literary magazine and small press featuring poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, and photography.

Vociferous Press, the first imprint of N&S Press, was created in order to help others and amplify voices that need to be heard. Sparked by the Screaming from the Silence anthology, each Vociferous publication supports a charity with a similar mission.

Please note that submissions must be sent via the appropriate submissions form—any work sent by email will be disregarded.

As much as our staff loves to talk about all things literary activism, please refrain from messaging our masthead on their personal accounts (email, social media, etc) about any official Vociferous Press matters—using our official email accounts or DMs allows us to keep our records straight!


Vociferous Press requests only first-time and archival rights for pieces accepted into our anthologies. In the case works by a single author (or collaborative group), Vociferous Press requests only the rights to the book in its complete form—you’re welcome to publish individual pieces/excerpts elsewhere!

Nightingale & Sparrow reserves the right to archive pieces on our website as well as in digital or print copies of relevant issues, unless removal is requested by the author. If a piece is considered for further publication (as in a “best of” anthology or another project), its author will always be contacted for permission.

Plagiarism Policy

By sending us work, the submitter ensures that all pieces sent to us for consideration is their own.

Nightingale & Sparrow does not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Should a published piece be suspected of being the intellectual property of anyone besides who has submitted it, it will be promptly removed from the Nightingale & Sparrow site and the submitter in question will not be permitted to submit to Nightingale & Sparrow again. In this event, the affected party (the creator who has been plagiarized) is automatically welcome to submit a replacement piece.

Nightingale & Sparrow is not legally responsible should a plagiarized piece be mistakenly published. However, we will take swift action to remedy the situation as much as possible (see above) should a plagiarism situation occur.
