Fugue is a journal of new literature edited by graduate students within the University of Idaho’s English and Creative Writing Programs. Fugue publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry and experiment pieces. We look for writing that incorporates new ideas, themes, and structures. Fugue awards cash prizes and publication for prose and poetry in our annual spring contest. Past judges include Mark Doty, BH Fairchild, Jo Ann Beard, Ilya Kaminsky, Patricia Hampl, and Tony Hoagland.

Poetry, nonfiction, and Experiment submissions are accepted September 1 through May 1; fiction is accepted September 1 through March 1 (Online submissions only). All material received outside of this period will be unread. Please mark your submission with the appropriate genre & submit using Submishmash. All contributors receive payment and two complimentary copies of the journal. Please send no more than five poems, two short-shorts, one story, or one essay at a time. Submissions in more than one genre should be submitted separately. We will consider simultaneous submissions, but we will not consider multiple submissions.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 80,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.
