Tips From the Editor

Please read an issue of Salt Hill before submitting--we're pretty eclectic, but it's good to get a feel for a magazine before submitting.

Please take note of the following changes to our submission period (also found on our Submittable and website).

During 2018-2019, we will hold two submission periods for fiction and poetry: 

  • August 1 through October 31
  • January 1 through March 31

We accept nonfiction and art submissions year-round.

We will be reading for the Philip Booth Poetry Award between May 15 and August 1.

Note: Starting from 2019-2020, we will be reading for poetry and fiction from July 1 through September 30, then January 1 through March 31.
