Call for Submissions, Red Earth Review 2016

Red Earth Review, a literary magazine published by the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University, is now accepting submissions for our fourth edition. Much like the MFA program at Oklahoma City University that shares its name and home, Red Earth Review is genuine, grounded, and fearless. Send us poetry or prose firm in foundation, steadfast in soul and in craft. Submission guidelines 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, 2015 or 300 submissions, whichever comes first. The target release date is July 2016. Submit one to five previously unpublished poems or one short story (fewer than 7,500 words) or one essay (fewer than 7,500 words).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 seperately. 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. 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. After first publication, all rights revert to the author/artist.
