Post Road publishes twice yearly and accepts unsolicited poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short plays and monologues, and visual art submissions.
Our submissions periods run from July 1 to August 31 for the summer issue, and from February 1 to March 31 for the winter issue. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but we ask to be informed immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
We're also currently accepting submissions for our first-ever flash fiction contest, to be judged by writers Elizabeth Graver and Suzanne Matson. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive prizes of $500, $250, & $100, respectively. All entries will be considered for publication. Stories by selected finalists will be included in the Post Road 33 Prize Folio, due out in fall 2017.
The contest deadline is March 1st, 2017. The co-judges will consider previously unpublished stories up to 1000 words. The contest is open to all fiction writers except current Boston College students, faculty, and staff, and the $15 entry fee includes a one-year subscription.
