SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Length Requirements

Up to three poems may be submitted at a time for consideration. Fiction and nonfiction pieces may not exceed 10 pages. Photography submissions may not exceed 10 photographs per submission.

 

We currently do not accept written pieces that exceed 40,000 words, or any work longer than a novella. Please keep in mind that for longer submissions, more than our usual four week turnaround time may be necessary.

 

All audio and video submissions should be no longer than eight minutes.

Formatting

We prefer written submissions to be in a sans-serif font with one-inch margins, but beyond that, we're not too picky. We accept DOC, DOCX, and TXT file uploads for poetry, fiction, and nonfiction submissions. 

Image files must be high resolution (minimum 300 dpi). We accept PDF, JPG, PNG, and TIFF file uploads for photography and artwork. 

Feedback

Thoughtful feedback is vital for growth, no matter the subject, so we offer it in two ways: a 300-500 word paragraph—free of charge—from a member of our editorial board detailing the strengths and weaknesses of the submission as well as suggestions for revision, or a 1-2 page editorial letter for a fee that delves further into craft and style. 

Because we greatly value accessibility in the literary community, we will always offer free submission and feedback options. 

Sending Us Your Work

All submissions must be uploaded to Submittable. Please allow our editorial board up to four weeks to review your submission.
