Poetry may be any length, but we recommend 5 to 7 poems per submission.
Maximum length for fiction is 7,500 words. Fiction manuscripts must be double-spaced, and must include page numbers.
Please include on your cover letter and on the first page of your manuscript:
· Mailing Address
· Email address
· Phone number
· Word count (fiction submissions only)
No email submissions are accepted.
Unsolicited manuscripts must be received by September 15 to be considered for the Robert Watson Literary Prizes and our Spring issue (acceptances in December) and by February 15 to be considered for the Fall issue (acceptances in May). Manuscripts received after those dates will be held for the next reading period.
