Our submission period for the Print Issue lasts from September 1 to January 19. Submit up to 5 total pages of poetry with each poem as a separate submission. (Maximum submission of 3 poems per reading period.) Submit up to 3 separate pieces of prose, each between 1,000 and 6,000 words.

Our submission period for each Online Issue begins on the first day of the month and ends on 11:59 PM on the fourteenth day of the month. Submit up to three poems per month, each as a separate submission. Submit up to three pieces of prose, each up to 1,000 words.

Please include a cover sheet that includes your name, Emerson ID, email address, phone number, and the title and genre of the work submitted.
