There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Please do not submit new work until after you hear from us regarding your first submission. If your work is accepted for publication, please wait one year before submitting again. We like to showcase as many new writers and artists as possible. If you do receive a rejection, please wait 60 days before submitting again.
Please Use Request to Edit for a partial withdraw. Please use Withdraw option if the entire submission must be withdrawn. Please remember to withdraw your submission ASAP if it is accepted elsewhere.
Please use block formatting (no left indents) for all prose submissions.
We are presently accepting original, unpublished works (including posting it on any website blog, deviant art, anywhere it can be found on the web). In particular, we are interested in fiction and creative nonfiction anywhere from 25 to 3000 words in length, poetry (no more than 3 poems per submission, and you can submit all of them at the same time on Submittable), photo essays, artwork, comics, video, hybrid—look, we’ve got eclectic tastes here. Don’t be afraid to submit works that defy form or genre. We cannot pay you, but if it makes you feel better, we’re not getting paid either.
If your work is accepted, we will request an image that represents you (you can interpret this however you'd like) to be included with your bio.
Please keep your images below 5 MB for bios and art submissions. If for some odd reason we need a larger image, we will contact you.
We do not reprint work published elsewhere, in any form, this includes work that has been published in print magazines, blogs, or anywhere online. It's disheartening to publish something, then realize that it is posted somewhere else.
All rights revert to author.
If we have published you in the past, please mark that box when you submit your work, because knowing this up front saves us a lot of time when we make our pages. If you fail to check that box to acknowledge that we have published your work in the past, you will be automatically rejected.
We do not accept submissions from current UAM MFA students.
