Editorial Focus

We at Levee aim to physically publish quality fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry from both emerging and established authors. We ask for First North American Serial Rights upon acceptance, but after that the rights revert back to you. Please send prose pieces (fiction and nonfiction) up to 8,000 words, and up to 5 poems at a time. Overall, we won't know what we'll love or hate until we see it, so show us what you got!

Tips From the Editor

WE ENJOY:

  • Poems written in meter
  • Literary Fiction
  • Surrealism
  • Magical Realism
  • Lyric Essays
  • Braided Essays
  • Experimental works
  • Contemporary takes on traditional poetic forms
  • Environmental Writing
  • Prose Poetry
  • Flash Fiction

WE SKIM:

  • Poems that are centered on the page
  • Shape Poetry
  • Genre Fiction
  • YA Fiction
  • Academic Essays
  • Stories that spell out the moral
  • Abundant similes
  • "Ode for ____" when it is not actually in ode form

If your piece is something not listed on either of these lists, it’s fair game.
