Call for Submissions – Raleigh Review

Raleigh Review is accepting poetry, flash fiction, and short fiction submissions through April 30 for the Fall 2015 issue. Raleigh Review is a biannual print publication with beautiful cover art, high-quality paper, full-color interior art, and stunning writing. We are looking for work that is emotionally and intellectually complex without being unnecessarily “difficult.” All submissions are online; there is a small fee to submit. We pay $10 per piece plus one free contributor’s copy and a discount on additional copies. See full submission guidelines at, and browse the archives while you’re there!

(Word to the wise: We are pretty full up on short fiction (1200-7500 words) so you might save it for the next submission period; still looking for flash. —Your friendly managing editor)

My new project: Raleigh Review

I’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately. Here’s why:

Raleigh Review Vol 4.1 cover

For the past several months I’ve been working with Raleigh Review Literary & Arts Magazine, first on business planning and now as managing editor.

The latest issue (Volume 4.1) just came out—and it’s gorgeous (though perhaps I’m biased). The cover has artwork by Geri Digiorno and is designed by Henry Kivett; inside you’ll find art by Debra Wuliger and Ruby Newman.

You’ll find poetry by Dorianne Laux, Joseph Millar, C. Wade Bentley, Marsha Mathews, and Eric Paul Shaffer (I’m partial to his “Soliloquy of the Chicken Sexer”) and fiction by Jacqueline Doyle, and Alisha Karabinus—among many others. There’s an interesting feel of Southern dialect in this particular issue.

Raleigh Review has been an annual journal, with selections online throughout the year, but we’re really excited to be moving to biannual in 2014. For those of you who are writers, please consider submitting now for the Fall 2014 issue.
