    Our Submittable account can receive only 1800 discrete submissions in a given month—after which the account will close until the new month. Please submit early each month to avoid being shut out. We publish a broad range of writing, with a particular—but by no means exclusive—interest in work that considers sociohistorical context. We also award two $500 prizes per issue—the Editors’ Prizes in Poetry and Prose—for what we consider to be the most exciting work in each issue, as determined by a vote of our in-house editorial staff. Please wait at least six months between submissions.
