Editorial Focus

Deep South Magazine is committed to being a forum for Southern writers and showcasing Southern literature and accepts submissions of original fiction, nonfiction and poetry. The Deep South has a rich history in literature thanks to writers like Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams and more recently Joshilyn Jackson and David Armand. It aims to help the next generation of Southern writers find their voice.

Tips From the Editor

Only electronic submissions will be considered. Please state your connection to the South in your query and also include a short bio about yourself.

Our reading period for poetry (published during the month of April) opens on Jan. 1. We will only accept fiction or nonfiction when certain themes are announced. Please check our website for these reading periods.
