Chestnut Review seeks poetry and flash fiction

web site

Deadline: June 30, 2020

CHESTNUT REVIEW appears four times per year online and once per year in print in our annual anthology. We are always interested in work that speaks to the season, even if it is in unusual and contradictory ways, but that is in no way a requirement. We are an open journal that accepts any artistic work which interests us. We do not judge based on the reputation, origin, or experience of the author, nor do we solicit submissions: 100% of our selected work comes from the open calls below. We accept work year round, but with an eye towards the following periods for each issue. Please submit seasonal-themed pieces in the appropriate period.
  • Jan 1-March 31: reading for Summer Issue (July release) 
  • April 1-June 30: reading for Autumn Issue (October release)
  • July 1-Sept 30: reading for Winter Issue (January release) 
  • Oct 1-Dec 31: reading for Spring Issue (April release)

Guidelines (Quick Version)
Types of Work: poetry, flash fiction, short fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, visual media (art/photography).

Language: English. We welcome written works that engage culture through languages other than English if the majority of the piece is in English. We do not publish translations in any form.
All those who submit work must be at least 18 years of age.

FREE submissions: 3 poems, 1-4 pieces of flash fiction, 20 pieces of visual art/photography. Our limit on Submittable is 500 free submissions/month.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged; no multiple submissions until response received on initial submission.

Rights: First North American Serial and First Anthology. CHESTNUT REVIEW reserves the right to archive the issue in perpetuity online, and to make the anthology available in perpetuity as well.
