Our spring reading period closes Tuesday, April 1, so be sure to send us your best poetry and fiction! Please remember that we won’t be reading creative nonfiction during this reading period, and we never publish reviews of creative work.
We will be accepting creative writing submissions via our new online submission system. Critical authors may still send submissions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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- We only consider unpublished work.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 email@example.com.
