Editorial Focus

Note: In 2023, Oyster River Pages will only accept submissions for its "Soundings" column, which features reviews, interviews, profiles, commentary, or other innovative forms (including multimedia) that seek to highlight or critically engage with issues or works of literary, artistic, or cultural significance. See submission guidelines for more details.


Tips From the Editor

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.  Please see the general guidelines for each genre. (Work that is unfinished, unproofed, or non-compliant 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.
