  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    It is difficult to publish experimental works accurately. Flush left is best. We love creative formats but if we can't publish it accurately, we won't be able to use it. If you are submitting a work that does not flush left and we accept said work, expect to see if formatted flush left on publication day. If there are different fonts and different font sizes, slash-throughs, underlines, and changing boldface and italics considerations, expect to see all of these levelled out into standard type on publication day. Please understand that this is not out of disrespect for creative formatting, font play, or a preference for flush left margins! We adore e.e. cummings. It is entirely a practical matter. The host's software and natural virtual habits make unusual formatting very difficult or impossible. Sorry.

  • Author's rights

    You always own your work and we never do. We do keep your work in our archives online if we accept it. We will not remove it just because you decide you no longer like it, have changed it, or want someone else to have it instead. You are free to use your own work anywhere, anytime, before, during, or after we publish it. We do appreciate it very much if you acknowledge The Ekphrastic Review when work we published appears elsewhere. Thank you!
