Submissions are open to SCWA members and nonmembers through July 31, 2022.

We are now reading for our annual September issue of The Petigru Review! We will notify all submitters by Aug. 31, 2022. We pay a $5 honorarium upon publication in the magazine.

New this year! We are offering expedited submission decisions for all categories. All proceeds benefit the magazine and go toward paying writers their honoraria.

We are open in the following categories:

  • Short Fiction – up to 5,000 words; or three flash pieces up to 1,000 words.
  • Book Chapter – up to 5,000 words plus synopsis/context of up to 300 words.
  • Creative Nonfiction – up to 5,000 words; or three flash essays up to 1,000 words.
  • Poetry – up to three poems per submission.
  • Cover Art – high resolution please.

You may submit once per genre at a time. Please wait for a response before submitting again in that category.

We only accept unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but the editors request you inform them if the work is accepted elsewhere. You can message us on Submittable to withdraw individual pieces or withdraw through Submittable if your entire submission has become unavailable.

We can’t wait to read your work!

The Editors, Maria S. Picone and Yvette R. Murray
