Submission Guidelines

Regular submissions for Issue 4 are due May 1st, 2014. Issue 4 will cover an entire year rather than a semester.


CREATIVE WRITING SUBMISSIONS

 
Filter and Fibre is interested in publishing your creative works--poetry, prose, and somewhere in between. No literary analyses or otherwise scholarly essays, please.

Poetry: You may submit up to three poems at once.

Short fiction: Short fiction should be under 5000 words. Please no novel excerpts. Genre pieces (things that are markedly fantasy, horror, science fiction, etc.) may be considered, but sparingly. Fanfiction is not acceptable.

Creative nonfiction and lyric essays: Creative nonfiction and lyric (i.e. creative as opposed to academic) essays should be under 5000 words.

Et cetera: Some writers tend toward the genre-less, turning out poems that look like prose and prose that reads like poetry. Work that refuses to be categorized will be considered, if such a predicament befalls you.

Whatever you do, do it well.

Filter and Fibre only accepts electronic submissions at filterandfibrejournal@gmail.com. Your submission email should include:
  • The genre of your submission in the "SUBJECT" line (if you plan to submit to two different genres, please send a separate email for each)
  • Your submission, attached as a .doc or .docx file (if submitting multiple poems, you may include them in one document)
  • Your name as you would like it to appear in the journal
  • The name of your high school
  • Your year in high school
  • A short biography of up to 50 words to accompany your submission, should it be chosen for publication (It is customary, in the biography, for you to write about yourself in the third person.)

If you have not heard anything about your submission within a month, you may inquire about its status via another email. Please be aware that mere submission does not necessarily guarantee acceptance and publication.


ART SUBMISSIONS


Filter and Fibre would love to share whatever art you make. A "work of art" is loosely defined, naturally, and all visual media will be considered. If you want to submit a cohesive series (e.g. a collection of photographs on a theme), that is acceptable.

Filter and Fibre only accepts electronic submissions at filterandfibrejournal@gmail.com. Your submission email should include:
  • The words "Art Submission" in the "SUBJECT" line
  • Your submission(s)--please keep the file(s) at a reasonable size
  • Your name as you would like it to appear in the journal
  • The name of your high school
  • Your year in high school
  • A short biography of up to 50 words to accompany your submission, should it be chosen for publication (It is customary, in the biography, for you to write about yourself in the third person.)

If you have not heard anything about your submission within a month, you may inquire about its status via another email. Please be aware that mere submission does not necessarily guarantee acceptance and publication.
