In this age of information overload, Appalachian Review strives to be a literary sanctuary for the finest contemporary writing and visual art that we can find. Formerly known as Appalachian Heritage, each quarterly issue showcases the work of emerging and established writers throughout Appalachia and beyond, offering readers literature that is thoughtful, innovative, and revelatory. Appalachian Review considers previously unpublished fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, writing for young adults, craft essays, book reviews, and visual art.
The Schuylkill Valley Journal publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, nonfiction, "dispatches", personal reflections, and visual art.
Lyric essays. Some hybrid/experimental. Some creative nonfiction.
Occasional themed issues, usually in the summer.
Please check our guidelines for specifics. We have rolling submission dates.
We especially enjoy lyricism, realism, the light breaking through the darkness. Beautiful prose poetry is sought.
The Owen Wister Review is the University of Wyoming’s Arts and Literary Journal produced through the Student Media department. The editorial staff is comprised entirely of undergraduate and graduate students who have nuanced yet supportive tastes in art and writing and strive to publish the best quality creative non-fiction, poetry, fiction, and art submitted from both emerging and established authors and artists. We encourage work that challenges itself, that is naturally surprising.
While we have strong roots in promoting western-themed writing, we do not make it our primary focus. We encourage submissions of quality work regardless of theme or location. Please read our submission guidelines before submitting, and please do give us plenty of notice if you are submitting simultaneously. Since we publish only unpublished work, we do need to know if the piece is accepted elsewhere. We highly recommend submitting online for these reasons. Thank you!
Accepted submissions include creative nonfiction, poetry, and cover art by authors that identify as women and must relate to the issue theme, as interpreted by the author, with an optimistic, hopeful vibe.
The theme is chosen in-house by editorial staff and will be announced when submissions open. Accepted authors will receive a limited edition, hand-bound copy of the issue they are in as well as $10.00 USD. Whether accepted to the issue or not, all authors will receive an email.

The South Carolina Review reimagines the Southern Literary Magazine.

No previously published work, work accepted elsewhere, or multiple submissions accepted. Please note that we cannot acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and that we cannot return manuscripts under any conditions.
Our goal has always been to publish the very best poetry and prose we can find in carefully-edited, hand-trimmed & hand-tied chapbooks; to work in close collaboration with authors through the production process; and to present a wide aesthetic range from both established and emerging writers.
Visit our website to read sample work from our authors. We're interested in your work, not your reputation, and have a special fondness for odd ducks. Reading periods are typically six weeks long for each of our open series. Especially interested in new & emerging voices from the widest possible range of experience.
Hub City Press publishes books of literary fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, regional nonfiction, nature, and art. We are looking for well-crafted, high-quality works by new and established authors, with an emphasis on the Southern experience and, particularly, with a strong sense of place.
Hub City is a small press, publishing four to six titles per year. In general, our publication schedule operates at least 12–18 months in advance of release. We accept queries in March/April and September/October. It is unlikely that we would publish an author who does not live or have roots in the South.
