The Jet Fuel Review
Call for Submissions: Fall 2011 issue (November, 2011)
Submission deadline extended to OCTOBER 8!
The Jet Fuel Review is a new, online literary journal. It is a student-run publication of Lewis University, edited by students under advisement of the English department. Our first issue was released this spring featuring the work of students, alumni, and many nationally-published authors. We are now accepting submissions for the fall issue, to be released November 29th of this year.
We are accepting fiction (short stories, flash fiction, micro shorts), non-fiction (lyrical essays, memoirs, hybrid works, etc), poems, and artwork. Please consider submitting!
General guidelines for submissions:
Fiction: Submissions should be 3000 words or less.
Non-Fiction: May also include critical literary essays of 3000 words, reviews of chapbooks or novels of 3500 words, and personal narratives of 5000 words or less are preferred.
Poetry: Poems or prose poems of less than 100 lines. Please do not send more than 6 poems within a reading period.
Artwork: You may send up to 3 pieces of artwork within a reading period. When submitting artwork, we request that you caption the artwork with a title, if available, and the medium in which you worked. We can only literally publish virtual art, that is, art that is transferable to an online format. If you wish to submit a painting or a sculpture, you are welcome to send a photo of the piece.
Please email all submissions as attachments to:
lewislitjournal(at)gmail.com (replace (at) with @)
Please use a subject line in this format: last name/genre/title.
All art submissions must be sent in .jpg or .png format for ease of viewing and posting.
All text submissions must be sent in .doc format or .rtf format; please do not send documents in .docx format.
Please include a short bio and contact information with your submissions in the body of the email. If we don’t have your contact information, we cannot publish your work! This would make us sad.
The content for The Jet Fuel Review’s fall 2011 Issue is exclusively online. Jet Fuel Review claims first publishing rights, which revert back to the author upon publication. While we allow simultaneous submissions, please do notify us as soon as possible if your work becomes unavailable as we do not publish previously published work, whether that publication occurred online or in print.
If you submit work, expect to hear back from us in October or November of this year (publication is scheduled for November). If you become concerned that we have overlooked your submission, please verify that you sent contact information.
