Clover & White submission guidelines

web site

Clover & White are open to submissions from all, especially unpublished writers.

We are particularly interested in work by unpublished or emerging writers and underrepresented writers. If you feel this includes you, please explain why in the body of your submission email.

You may send work from anywhere in the world, but all submissions must be in English.

Your work should be original and unpublished elsewhere. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable; however, please let us know immediately if your work is chosen to be published elsewhere.

Submission is free. Clover & White is run entirely by volunteers who pay for operating costs themselves. Therefore, we are not able to pay anyone for their work at this time.

Please send your work as a Microsoft Word or PDF file. Please read the guidelines below and email your submission to with Poetry, Flash Fiction or Short Story Submission in the subject.

When submitting your work, please include a short author biography (2-4 sentences) and any links you want us to post with your work. For example, your twitter handle or blog address.

We only need the documents with your creative work, a short bio and links to your social media/blog. Please do not send CV’s, commentaries with your work, author images, or pieces that do not adhere to the word limits.

Poets, feel free to format your piece however you’d like. However, if you are submitting prose, please format the text correctly, using the appropriate paragraphs, indentations, speech marks and dialogue tags.

A legible font at 12pt is fine.


Poetry — 1 poem or a collection of 3. Poems should be no longer than a page of A4.

Flash Fiction — Your flashes can be a story or a moment. Min 200 words, max 500 words.

Short stories — All short stories should be min 500, max 2000 words.
