Black Warrior Review Open Submissions

Straight from the site:

"We have moved to an online submission system, which can be found at

SPECIAL NOTE: Poetry and Nonfiction are STILL OPEN for both regular and contest submissions. Please visit the submission manager to submit.
Snail mail submissions were officially closed as of 4/25/2010. Any snail mail submissions we receive will now be recycled. Please take note.

We read submissions year-round, though our response time is slower in the summer. Please submit only once every six months. The average response time for submissions is between 2 and 4 months. If you have not received a response after 4 months (excepting the summer), send a query and SASE through the mail, or email us at, and we'll check on the status of your submission.
In addition to poetry and fiction, Black Warrior Review is also seeking creative nonfiction that experiments, plays, and throws the occasional snowball in our faces. We call for essays that offer up a new perspective, an unvoiced thought, an overlooked association—and we hope that you will send us pieces that not only challenge us with their content, but also with their form. We prize the lyric and the language driven, both the sparsely stated and the indulgently ruminative.

Please do not mix genres in the same submission.

We do NOT accept unsolicited e-mail submissions, nor do we consider previously published work.
We encourage you to read Black Warrior Review before submitting. Sample issues are available for $10; one-year subscriptions for $16.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, if noted (please notify us immediately if the work is accepted somewhere else)."

Check out the site listed above and good luck to all who submit…
