We publish two reviews a year: Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. Deadlines are August 31 and March 1. You may submit up to three poems. We will also showcase a short work of creative non-fiction in the Fall/Winter issue and a short story in the Spring/Summer issue. Submit only one per issue.
We look for well-crafted poems under 61 lines. Poems should be single-spaced indicating stanza breaks. If other than single spacing is integral to the poem, please indicate where breaks occur.
Creative non-fiction and short stories must be no more than 12 pages, double-spaced.
Manuscripts must bear the author's name, address, email address and phone number. A brief biography and SASE must also be included.
We will accept simultaneous submissions, but we do not accept previously published work. If you intend to submit work simultaneously, tell us so in your submission cover letter. However, once we have notified you of an acceptance, it will be published as a first time publication. All rights revert back to the author after publication.
We read all submissions, but turn-around will be faster if you submit work shortly before the deadlines, when we can see what will fit each issue best. If we like your work but are not sure it will be a good fit for the issue, we tend to hold onto it until everything has come in.
We pay one complimentary copy of the magazine
