Hoxie Gorge Review is committed to publishing innovative poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by both emerging and established contemporary writers. We aim to provide a platform for writing that is urgent and engaging, regardless of theme or style. To that end, we seek work that compels us, that challenges us, that breaks us open. Our only requirement is quality. Send us your best.
*How to Submit: during our open reading periods we accept unsolicited short fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry.
We especially welcome marginalized voices and authors from underrepresented communities to submit.
Simultaneous submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry are welcome and encouraged. If your submission is no longer available for publication, please use our online submission portal to withdraw it as soon as possible. If you need to withdraw a single poem, please add a note to your submission and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions are free and accepted only through submittable. Emailed submissions will not be read.
For poetry, please submit 3-5 poems in a single document. Each poem should start on a new page. For fiction and nonfiction, please send only one story or essay per reading period. While we prefer shorter pieces, we are happy to read quality work of any length.
Previously published work, in print or online, will not be considered.
Please include a cover letter with your contact information and a brief third person bio in the “Comments” section.
Contributors retain all rights but are asked to acknowledge Hoxie Gorge Review as first publisher if works appear in books, anthologies, or future publications.
While we aim to respond to your work in a timely manner, please allow up to 3 months for response.
