Submission Opportunities

Hi guys,

We’re back with some upcoming submission opportunities. Make sure to check the date on these. Some deadlines are a week away and some are the end of February.


The Pinch is a great little magazine. A friend of mine got contacted by an agent to see more work after she had a story in this magazine.

A contest for poets and prose writers:

If you write about the outdoors, this may be the journal for you:

Great little journal out of NYU:

Any place that pays for work is worth another look. See Wordrunner eChapbooks below:

I love Ninth Letter. And they pay well ~ $25/printed page.


Vestal Review is back! They were not accepting submissions for awhile. Nice to see this flash fiction stalwart back in business.

Another well respected flash journal.

This journal is looking for flash fiction ghost stories!


A journal looking for poems:

A residency contest for poets. Enter for a chance to win a ten day residency during Antioch’s MFA residency. Sounds amazing!

Chance for paid publication of a poetry chapbook:


Here’s one of the contests Jonathan Bohr Heinen told us about at the conference!

If you have a story collection ready, you may want to submit to this contest. Sarabande Books is a very well-respected and award-winning small press based in Louisville, KY.

Enter the first few pages of your novel!


Upstreet is another well-known, quality journal:

Why not shoot for the best in southern magazines? They’re open for submissions!

Before I sign off, I wanted to mention my feeling about submissions. I love submitting my work to literary magazines. In fact, I love it so much, I even love the rejections. What I realized at some point is that every rejection means I’m closer to an acceptance. I know that if I’m going to have anything accepted, getting rejected is part of the process.

Happy submitting, y’all, and good luck,
