Submissions Guidelines

Submissions are now closed.

We will re-open submission in September.

Typically we ask for submissions to be sent as a word doc or docx with 3-5 pages of poetry or 10-12 pages of fiction and nonfiction. Anything outside that scope, like an experimental form or digital project, please send a one-page proposal and we will be in touch if we want to see more. We are looking for new, unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know if it’s been chosen for publication elsewhere.
