2023 Timberline Review and Kay Snow Submissions: WW Members PLUS writers from BIPOC, LQBTQIA+ & disabilities communities

Willamette Writers invites you to submit to our two programs, the Timberline Review and Kay Snow Awards. The theme this year is DREAM.

New this year, if you submit to the Timberline Review, your piece is automatically entered into the Kay Snow Awards! As always, Willamette Writers members may submit to Timberline Review free of charge.

We are seeking work in the following categories:

  • Poetry
  • Fiction (flash, short story, novella, and novel excerpt)
  • Creative nonfiction (including essay and memoir) and Critical commentary (Writing about writing including literary analysis, and craft instruction)
  • Drama and screenplay

This year, the Kay Snow Award will be chosen by our editorial staff and given to (1) the top piece and (2) the runner-up in each of the above categories. We are seeking submissions from writers 18 and up. Details about Kay Snow Student Submissions will be announced in 2023.

We are also seeking Visual Art submissions in black and white for inside the journal and color illustrations for cover art.

As always, Willamette Writers members may submit to the Timberline Review free of charge. Members of the BIPOC, LQBTQIA+ and disabilities communities are also encouraged to submit free of charge. The submission fee is not a reading fee – it helps cover the cost of the Timberline Review educational programming.

If you are not a member of Willamette Writers, please use the guest submission form.
