The Hoxie Gorge Review publishes innovative poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by emerging and established contemporary writers.
Here’s what the editors have to say about what they’re looking for:
We aim to provide a platform for writing that is urgent and engaging, regardless of theme or style. To that end, we seek work that compels us, that challenges us, that breaks us open. Our only requirement is quality. Send us your best.
It’s easy to get a feel for what they publish by reading their current issue. You have until September 30, 2020, to submit your work to them through Submittable.
How to Submit to the Hoxie Gorge Review
If you’re interested in sending your work to the Hoxie Gorge Review, here’s what you’ll need to know:
- For fiction: you may submit one story. That story should be under 4,000 words, but this isn’t a strict rule.
- Poets may submit three to five poems in a single file.
- For nonfiction: you can submit a personal essay or memoir of 4,000 words or less. Like fiction, they are open to longer work.
The publisher is encouraging marginalized voices and authors from underrepresented communities to send their work in for review.
Additionally, simultaneous submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry are welcome and encouraged. However, if your work is no longer available for publication, please let them know as soon as possible through their submissions portal. If you need to withdraw a single poem, please add a note to your submission and email them at email@example.com.
Previously published work, in print or online, will not be considered. They try to respond to all submissions in three months. You have until September 30, 2020, to send your work their way.
