2022 Submissions Calendar

Hi all - We've never really had a submissions calendar and it's mostly because I wasn't sure how to do it. Most journals are on the academic calendar, smaller journals open and close whenever they feel like it, and The Paris Review is open twice a year in March and September, but are open all year for their online blog. With that in mind and as we're growing, here is our 2022 submission calendar.

Issue Submissions Open

  • March

  • June

  • September

  • December

Reasons for this schedule: All the cool kids do it. Also, not being open all the time creates a demand and gives submitters incentive to submit, add us to their calendars, and makes us more attractive by playing hard to get. Go figure. 🤷🏻‍♀️It also allows us to have a sense of what we're in for, what to expect, and not feel discombobulated by irregular submission periods. This also allows me to pre-schedule notices on social media.


Each submission month will have one free submission window on the 15th of the month.

  • March 15

  • June 15

  • September 15

  • December 15


Submissions for The Weekly will be open all year. This will allow us to have content coming in regularly, but also keep poetry critiques open. Weekly submissions will not be considered for the issue or vice versa. The Weekly has become its own unique thing and this creates a demarcation line. I will officially open submissions for The Weekly on March 1st along with general submissions.
