New Call for Submissions!
Cave Wall reads unsolicited poetry submissions twice a year. Our next open reading period is April 1-30, 2011 (postmark deadline). We do not accept email submissions. Please follow the guidelines below. During an open reading period, send your best work to: Cave Wall Press, LLC, P.O. Box 29546, Greensboro, NC 27429-9546.
Toad magazine is accepting submissions year-around. For poetry and prose: in the body of the email include your name, one aspect of everyday life (see the contributor’s page for happenin’ examples) that you consider art, and attach a single PDF or Word document that contains your submission and contact information only. Include the genre of the work and your last name in the document title (e.g. Dramatic_Monologue_Jagger.doc).
Dragnet is accepting submissions of literary fiction (which is all we publish) and should be as fun as it is well made. Although we’re not strictly a humour magazine, as frivolous people we enjoy work with a sense of play to it. Most literary fiction is far too long, so keep your entries at a 1000 words maximum, please. The deadline for the inaugural issue has passed, but we are now taking submissions for Issue Two with a deadline of May 1, 2011.
Conte is accepting submissions. As of February 1st, we are actively reading for our Summer 2011 issue, Conte 7.1, which is slated for publication in August. Conte publishes narrative writing of the highest quality on a biannual basis. Writing that displays some degree of familiarity with our journal is likely to attract our attention, so make sure your work has a narrative bent.
