Submissions Roundup: March

March’s submissions roundup is a short one, because, let’s face it, graduation got to me and April is now right around the corner. In a break from previous roundups, however, I will no longer include journals or magazines that are unpaid. There are simply too many gems out there that are able to support writers for the hard work they put into their pieces, and I’d rather focus on those publications for the time being. (As I’m sure you’ll all appreciate.)

Colorado Review

The Colorado Review is a national literary journal that features contemporary poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and book reviews. In 1956, the first issue featured Langston Hughes, William Carlos Williams, E.E. Cummings, and Henry Miller. The review is interested in work by both new and established writers and is published three times a year.

What you need to know:

  • The review pays $10/page for poetry and $200 for short stories and essays.
  • Submit your work online by Submittable.
  • The entry fee is $3.
  • The deadline is April 30.
Confrontation Magazine

Confrontation Magazine began in 1968 with the mission of “bringing new talent to light in the shadows cast by well-known authors.” Each issue contains a little of both—original work by both the famous and the lesser-known. The magazine publishes poetry, fiction, and nonfiction and has featured the work of authors like John Steinbeck, Joyce Carol Oates, Arthur Miller, and more.

What you need to know:

  • The review pays $175-250 for fiction, $75-100 for poetry, and $100-150 for nonfiction.
  • Submit your work by mail.
  • There is no entry fee.
  • The deadline is April 15.
Fugue

Fugue is a journal managed and edited by graduate students in the English and Creative Writing Programs at University of Idaho. Past issues have featured work by Steve Almond, Nick Flynn, and Sharon Olds. Fugue publishes both poetry and prose. In addition to being open to general submissions (see below), the journal is also open to submissions to its annual writing contest, which comes with a cash prize of $1,000 and a $15 entry fee.

What you need to know:

  • The review pays for work (we’re just not sure how much).
  • Submit your work online by Submittable.
  • The entry fee is $3.
  • The deadline is May 1.
Georgia Review

The Georgia Review is published quarterly by The University of Georgia and features an eclectic mixture of essays, fiction, poetry, graphics, and book reviews. Past issues have featured work by Rita Dove, Stephen Dunn, Louise Erdrich, Philip Levine, Joyce Carol Oates, and more.
