Multiple submissions are allowed and encouraged, but each submission must be accompanied with a reading fee.
Simultaneous submissions are also welcome and encouraged. Kindly let us know if your submission has been accepted elsewhere.
Submit only the first three chapters instead of the full manuscript. Include the table of contents if necessary and a 2-3 page synopsis (for novel, story compilations or nonfiction book entries) after the title page. Please use Times New Roman 12 pt. font, and submit your document as a Word attachment. If we are interested, we’ll request the full manuscript (there will be no reading fee for this request).
We ask for First Rights for pieces published in RUNNING WITH WATER, our bi-annual literary anthology.
