Oyster River Pages seeks work for the fourth annual issue

web site

Deadline May 31, 2020

Oyster River Pages publishes fine fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and visual art online.

Submissions for the fourth annual issue will be accepted January 1–May 31, 2020.

Please see the general guidelines below for each genre. (Work that is unfinished, unproofed, or noncompliant with the guidelines gives our editors existential angst.)

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please contact us immediately if your work is picked up elsewhere. We request first serial rights, after which all rights revert to the author or artist. We do not reprint previously published work. Please include a 60-word bio with your submission. To stay in touch with the latest happenings at ORP, subscribe to our mailing list below.

Emerging Voices Fiction: Please submit one story up to 6,000 words in .docx format. Only one story per submitter will be read and reviewed. All work should be double-spaced. Please include your full name and preferred email on the first page of the document.

Creative Non-Fiction: Please submit creative non-fiction pieces that are no longer than 2,500 words in .docx format. All work should be double-spaced. Your name should not appear anywhere in the document.

Poetry: Please submit up to three poems in .docx format. Each poem should start on its own page. Otherwise, the spacing of the submission will remain as is in publication to preserve the integrity of the poem. Your name should not appear anywhere in the document.
