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 2021-2022, we will hold two submission periods for fiction and poetry: 

  • July 15 through September 5
  • January 1 through February 15

We accept nonfiction and art submissions year-round.

We will be reading for the Philip Booth Poetry Award between February 16 and March 16.

After a hiatus, we hope to hold the Dead Lake Chapbook Contest in fall 2021.
