Shenandoah: General Submissions

FICTION (Story, Novel Excerpt) submissions will open on Feb. 6, 2023.

POETRY submissions will be considered by Lesley Wheeler in the spring starting on March 1, 2023 until we reach 500 submissions.

COMICS submissions are now open.

Shenandoah‘s window for TRANSLATION submissions, as a courtesy to international submitters, is usually open permanently, but our translation editor is curating a special section for our Spring 2023 issue. Check this page or social media for future reading periods.

PLEASE NOTE: Our submission manager accepts only 800 submissions per month as that is all we can reasonably handle. If submissions are not being accepted during the windows noted, it’s because we’ve already reached 800. We suggest submitting early in the reading period.

Details about all of the genres are available on Submittable, which is where you should go, you guessed it, to submit. We do not accept submissions by email.

*Please note that we no longer accept submissions by mail, with apologies to the U.S. Postal Service. *
