    Poems and creative nonfiction should be 12pt text; set in Courier, Arial, Times New Roman (double space creative nonfiction).

  • Author's rights

    We believe a writer should have full control of their work, so all copyright and publication rights remain with the writer at all times. However, we appreciate exclusive publication rights for three months after the issue has been published to ensure maximum impact. And that if your piece appears in Snapdragon Journal before any others that you acknowledge that in any subsequent publications.​
