Pieces will be accepted on their merits. Please limit submissions to 3 items per issue (poetry and prose considered as separate entries). Flash fiction and flash non-fiction will be considered in each category, limited to 500 words. To maximize diversity, we publish no more than one work per contributor per issue. We read 100% blind, so do not include your name or any other identifying information.
Please do not submit previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are ok, but please let us know promptly if your work has been accepted elsewhere. We generally do not notify submitters until after the submission period has closed and all pieces have been reviewed.
Submit one MS WORD document in .doc or .docx with each piece beginning on a new page. Do not include your name or any other identifying information. Instead, submit a separate cover page with your contact information, the name(s) of the piece(s), and a biography of 60 words or less. Please use a popular font such as Calibri, Arial, or Times New Roman, 12 point. We prefer single-spaced formats, except when alternate spacing is a deliberate part of the layout.
Hard copy will not be accepted and will be destroyed. We adhere strictly to our deadline (US Central time zone). Any submissions received after 11:59 pm of the closing date for the Call will be automatically rolled into the next submission period for consideration. Thanks for thinking of panoplyzine.com!
