Guidelines
  • The Phoenix accepts previously unpublished work in any style, form, or genre. No more than 5000 words, double-spaced, for prose or five poems per entry. Applicants must be enrolled in high school or community college to participate.
  • All work entered will be considered for publication. 
  • Please submit your work as the title of the piece(s) specifically.
  • Blind Submissions: Out of fairness to all writers, The Phoenix requires that your name and contact information not be placed on any of the uploaded files of your submissions.
