Editorial Focus

We look for language and stories and images that move us out of ourselves and into other spaces. We actively seek to publish those who bring balance and diversity to historical institutions of power. We are committed to disseminating decentered and marginalized voices, whose words and images transcend ignorance and prejudice to reveal the nuanced, resilient, connective power of humanity.

Tips From the Editor

Oyster River Pages publishes fine fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and visual art online annually.  Please see the general guidelines for each genre. (Work that is unfinished, unproofed, or noncompliant with the guidelines gives our editors existential angst.) Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please contact us immediately if your work is picked up elsewhere. We request first serial rights, after which all rights revert to the author or artist. We do not reprint previously published work.
