PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE SUBMITTING.

ONLINE SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN (Until May 1st, 2014)

Quarterly West now accepts online submissions only. We will continue to accept simultaneous submissions, though we request that you withdraw manuscripts that have been accepted for publication elsewhere.

Unfortunately, we are unable to return any print manuscripts sent for online publication. Any manuscripts that are sent to us, even with SASE, will be recycled (please noe that this does not apply to the novella contest).

Poetry Guidelines

Prose (Fiction, Nonfiction, or Flash Fiction) Guidelines

New Media / Visual Guidelines

Please do not submit more than one entry per genre at a time.

No previously published work will be considered.

Quarterly West acquires First North American Serial Rights for the work we publish. All rights revert back to the author upon publication. If your work is later republished, we request you note its initial publication in Quarterly West.

We ask that former contributors wait at least one year after publication before submitting new work to Quarterly West.
