There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Split Rock Review 's reading period for the Spring 2019 Issue is November 1 - December 30, 2018.

Split Rock Review publishes poetry, short creative nonfiction, book reviews, interviews, graphic narratives, comics, and artwork that explore place, environment, and the intersection of nature and culture. We recommend that you read previous issues to get a better idea of our preferences.  

Please carefully review our submission categories (we have several) and guidelines. Your work will be considered in the genre to which it's submitted. All submissions should include a brief biographical note (space is provided in the online submission form). Place titles of work in the “Submission Title” field, with titles separated by commas. No identifying information may appear on the pages of your manuscript.

We acquire first serial/electronic rights and electronic archival rights. You also agree that if the work is published subsequently (online or in print) acknowledgment is given to Split Rock Review.

We do not consider previously published works.​​ Simultaneous submissions are fine, but if your piece is accepted elsewhere we ask you to withdraw or make a note of it in your submission by way of our online submission system.

Unfortunately, we cannot pay our contributors; however, we do our best to promote our writers/artists and their work.

Thank you for your interest in Split Rock Review
