  • Additional info

    Each fall Nimrod announces a theme for the following spring issue. The guidelines for thematic submissions are the same as for general submissions, except that thematic submissions are sometimes accepted in December. (Very occasionally we may choose a theme from previously accepted manuscripts, and then will not announce one for that year.) Online thematic submissions have a $3 fee associated with them. Our spring issue is thematic and often dedicated to writers from one region of the world; we have devoted issues to China, India, Australia, Vietnam, the Celtic Fringe, and Mexico, as well as many other regions and countries. The spring issue also features the winners and finalists of our newest prize: The Francine Ringold Awards for New Writers, which recognize fiction and poetry by writers at the beginning of their writing careers. Our fall issue features the winners and finalists of The Nimrod Literary Awards: The Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction and The Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry. Selections from Nimrod have been included in The Best American Short Stories, Best Stories from the South, New Voices in American Fiction, Best New Poets, Best American Poetry, and many other noted anthologies. PLEASE NOTE: We are delaying the opening of general submissions for 2023 until we have worked through general submissions sent in 2022. We hope to announce the opening of 2023 general submissions soon. In the meantime, submissions for the Nimrod Literary Awards are open until April 1st, 2023.
