We accept unsolicited submissions of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, scholarship with a creative bent, and book reviews. All submissions must be in Microsoft Word or a PDF.
Poetry: 3-5 unpublished poems in one document (not to exceed ten pages). Fiction and Nonfiction: 5000 words. Book reviews we usually around 1200-1500 words. Writers can submit once to each genre, but we please ask for only one submission (per genre) for each reading period.
Our reading period runs from November 4 to April 15. Because of the high volume of submissions we receive, response time ranges from three months until our closing date. Payment is one complimentary copy of the issue with additional copies available at 8 dollars per issue. We accept simultaneous submissions; please notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere.
To help maintain the high quality of our print journal, and to offset costs we have reluctantly decided to charge a 3 dollar reading fee for each submission.
In order to expedite our reading of your work and to simplify the process for you, we’re pleased to have moved exclusively to online submissions. To submit, please click here:
