Red Earth Review, a literary magazine published by the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University, is now accepting submissions for our fifth edition.
Much like the program that shares its name, Red Earth Review seeks writers who are genuine, grounded, and fearless. Send us poetry or prose that is firm in the foundation of its craft and steadfast in its soul. Our submission guidelines are below. We look forward to reading your work.
We accept fiction, both literary and genre, creative nonfiction, poetry, and encourage new and emerging writers to submit. The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2016 or 300 submissions, whichever comes first. The target release date is July 2017. Submit one to five previously unpublished poems or one short story (fewer than 7,500 words) or one essay (fewer than 7,500 words). Poets: Please submit each work separately.
If our Submittable page says "No Active Categories," before November 1, then we have reached 300 submissions. Red Earth Review has chosen to limit the number of submissions in order to assure that we can give submissions the readings they deserve. Please include a bio in the bio section of the submission form; bios must be 150 words or less. Submissions that do not follow guidelines on the Submittable page will not be read.
Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but if your submitted work is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw your submission using your Submittable account.
Payment is a contributor’s copy of Red Earth Review. Please send submissions here. After first publication, all rights revert to the author/artist.
