Submissions are open until March 31, 11:59 p.m. EST.
We accept both previously published and unpublished works from authors who have not yet published a full-length manuscript via a major publisher at the time of submission.
We ask for first North American serial and electronic rights for previously unpublished works, as well as electronic archival rights. All rights revert back to the contributor following publication, but we ask that you credit Farside Review as the first place of publication if your piece is later published elsewhere. By submitting to us, you affirm that your work does not violate copyright law in any form.
If your piece has been previously published, please include credits to the original publisher in your cover letter and verify that you have full rights to republish.
We do not tolerate plagiarism or works that promote hatred, bigotry, or discrimination of any kind. We reserve the right to reject and remove work of contributors that violate these guidelines. If you find any issues of concern in our published content, please contact us by email.
We currently accept submissions by email. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the subject line, include the genre of your submission and your name in the format: Submission: Genre – First Name Last Name. In the body of the email, include a brief cover letter and a third-person bio (and feel free to write a short message to the editors).
We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions, but please specify any simultaneous submissions in your initial email and let us know immediately if any one of your pieces has been accepted elsewhere.
All submissions must be attached as files, not as text in the body of the email. Submissions are read blindly, so please do not include your name or any identifying information within your document(s). We prefer PDF (.pdf) files.
We accept submissions from the genres below, although hybrid forms of work are also welcome.
Fiction and Creative Nonfiction
We accept up to 12 pages of writing per work, and up to 3 works per submission cycle. All prose must be double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman or Garamond font.
Each work should be placed in a separate document, with the document title as LastName_FirstName_Genre_Title (e.g. “Smith_Joe_Fiction_Stones”). Please include the title of your work at the top of the document.
We accept up to 7 poems per submission cycle, regardless of poem length. All poems should be placed in one document, starting a new page for each poem. Title your document as LastName_FirstName_Poetry.
