Red Earth Review, a literary magazine published by the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University, is now accepting submissions for our second 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 30, 2013 and the target release date is July 2014. Submit one to five previously unpublished poems or one short story (fewer than 7,500 words) or one essay (fewer than 7500 words).
Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but if your submitted work is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw your submission using your Submittable account.
Payment is in copies. After first publication, all rights revert to the author/artist.
NOTE: Current students who wish to submit to RER may do so; student submissions are judged by an outside reader who will be announced after publication of the journal. Students should submit using the Submittable page.
Issue #1 of Red Earth Review is now in print. Contributors can expect their copies to arrive in the mail by late July 2013. Print copies can be purchased at all Red Earth MFA residency public events or by sending a check for $12 plus $2 postage to Red Earth Review, C/O English Dept., WC 248, Oklahoma City University, 2501 N Blackwelder • Oklahoma City, OK 73106-1493
