Ring in the new year by sending us your best poetry and fiction! Our spring reading period opens Wednesday, January 1. Please remember that we won’t be reading creative nonfiction during this reading period, and we never publish reviews of creative work.
Please consider our submission guidelines before sending us your work:
- We only consider unpublished work. Please do not submit previously published material, including work published in anthologies, chapbooks, or online.
- We read creative work August 1-November 1 and January 1-April 1 of each year. Submissions may be uploaded at any time.
- Simultaneous submissions are permitted. Please notify us immediately if a work is accepted by another publication.
- Due to the large number of submissions we receive, we must place a limit on submission of new work until three months after your last submission, regardless of whether we’ve made a decision on your most recently submitted work. If a work is still under review, you may withdraw it and submit new work, up to the limits already mentioned.
If you have any questions about the submission process or our new submissions manager, please email Lorin Shellenberger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
