Editorial Focus

3Elements Literary Review has a presence in Chicago, IL, as well as Des Moines, IA. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography.

Each issue begins with the posting of three elements, and ends with a journal filled with the imaginative ways in which each writer and artist transformed those elements.

We exist to inspire creativity. We want contributors to our journal to have fun seeing each element through a different lens. We, as well as our readers, thoroughly enjoy the journey on which each piece takes us, as no one story or poem is ever the same.

Tips From the Editor

All three elements (the specific words) given for the submission period must be included in your story to be considered for publication. No exceptions.

Proofread your work. We must decline pieces that need major editing, even if they are otherwise good. This is standard in the world of submitting and publishing.

There is no minimum word count, but please don't exceed 3,500 words for fiction and nonfiction and two pages for poems.

Please submit no more than two pieces of fiction and five poems.

No previously published work.

A short third-person bio must be included with your submission.

We appreciate good writing in any genre.

We especially like edgy writing that offers insight into darkness. We prefer character-driven stories as opposed to plot-driven ones.
