Please note that we use Submittable for managing our submissions. Rash Award entries and general submissions are accepted through Submittable only. Follow the link at the bottom of the page.
Writers have two avenues for submission, either a general submission or a submission to our contests, the Rash Awards, which offer $500 first prizes in both Fiction and Poetry. All general submissions and contest submissions received during the reading period will be considered for publication. However, only official entries for the Rash Awards will be eligible for the prize awards. For details about the contest, please see the Contest Rules.
The Broad River Review will be reading general submissions from February 1 – April 1, while we will accept Rash Award contest entries April 15, 2022. Selected works and contest winners will be published in Volume 53, which will appear late fall in 2022. The Broad River Review welcomes submissions of original poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and we also encourage visual artists to submit samples for possible cover art.
Poetry submissions are restricted to five poems, with no more ten pages total per submission. Fiction and nonfiction submissions must be no more than 5,000 words. Previously published work will not be considered. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if our editors are notified immediately that the work has been accepted elsewhere.
