Submissions are open for our summer 2017 edition

We are looking for poetry, prose and photography that responds creatively to the theme of being islanded.


We are open to all genres. Tone and mood matter more than trope or setting.


  • short stories between 1,500 and 5,000 words
  • poems of any length


  • for written works, a standard manuscript format – please keep it simple:
  • for photographs, JPGs at 300 dpi – we may ask for higher resolution if your photography is selected for publication

Reprints and simultaneous submissions

  • no reprints
  • simultaneous submissions are acceptable – but please tell us if your submission is accepted elsewhere

Send your submission to

We will judge each submission on its own merit: cover letters and publication histories are not required.

Please do not prompt us for a response before 30 days have elapsed.
