Submission guidelines

We consider original, unpublished works of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry for our biannual print publication. Stories and essays should not exceed 8,000 words. Excerpts from novels and memoirs are considered but should be self-contained. Poetry submissions are limited to five poems per submission. Translations are considered in all genres; please include a copy of the original.

We request first serial rights. All rights revert to the author upon publication. Each contributor will receive two copies of the journal.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, however, please indicate this and let us know immediately if it has been accepted elsewhere. Submissions are online only through our submissions manager.
