Alluvia

Submissions

We look to publish vibrant and lyric short fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, both from established and new writers. There is no cost to submit, and there are no reading or contest fees. Publication in 2017 will first be online and then via print on demand (POD) hardcopy. For this year, full online access at this website will be free, with costs associated only with the POD option.

 

Our current call for submissions is available via this PDF file if you'd like a printable sheet or would like to pass that along to other writers. Submissions are due by Monday, March 27, 2017 via email attachment to editor@alluvia.nz.

Genres considered

Short fiction, literary nonfiction, and lyric poetry form our core. So please don’t submit fan fiction, movie sequels, romance, shoot’em ups, and so forth. (If in doubt, send us a page to consider.) Word counts below note maximums, yet we’re also keen for very short prose (from 300-1,000 words, fiction or nonfiction), prose poems (up to 600 words), and experimental or slipstream writing (up to 7,500 words).

Prose (fiction or nonfiction) submissions are limited to 7,000 words – please send only one fiction or nonfiction manuscript at a time and wait until you’ve heard back from us before submitting further prose.

Poetry submissions are limited to no more than 4 poems (max. 2,000 words in total) – please wait on further submissions until you’ve heard back from us.

Interviews, critical/literary reviews, and visual/graphic art – this year we are not accepting unsolicited interviews, critical/literary reviews (of books, artists, musicians, films, etc), or visual/graphic artwork. If you have a recently completed interview of interest to readers, send us an query note via email.

 

Please submit only previously unpublished works – we’re fine with simultaneous submissions elsewhere, but ask that you let us know promptly if your piece is accepted, so we can free up room for other writers.

Attachments & formatting

Send your submission as an email attachment to editor@alluvia.nz, and please note the genre in the email subject line (e.g., “poem,” “short story,” etc).

 

        Only Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx) files will be reviewed, and please:
  —  include your name and genre in the filename (e.g., “JaneJones-fiction.docx”),
  provide your name, email, and phone details at the top of page one for fiction and nonfiction manuscripts (or the top of the first page for each poem),
  have all text single-spaced in a standard, 12-point type (e.g., Times), with double-spacing between paragraphs (prose) or stanzas/sections (poetry), and
  note the page number and your title in a footer on pages 2 and following.


Submission deadline is Monday, March 27, 2017 via email attachment to editor@alluvia.nz.
