Submissions must be previously unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions will be considered as long as we are notified immediately if the piece is accepted elsewhere.

Work that will be considered from an author includes:

  • 1-6 poems, each under two pages long
  • Fiction or creative non-fiction up to 2,000 words
  • 1-4 pieces of original, sophisticated, and complete artwork
  • 1-5 original photographs


Our current response time varies and will be longer if your work is under serious consideration, but acceptance and denial notifications will generally be sent out by the end of December each calendar year. Please be patient! We are a small, hard-working staff and we want to give every piece the time it deserves. 

If you are accepted, we will send you a free copy of the finished product.
