  • Thirty West Publishing does accept previously published work with proper literary acknowledgment, however, we will not accept reprints. Any manuscripts submitted during unsolicited periods and/or contests must be unpublished as a whole.
  • The Weekly Degree online journal does not accept previously published work. If accepted, we ask for First Serial Rights until published, then all rights revert to the contributor.

  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but a note must be left in Submittable. Please withdraw and email us if it becomes accepted elsewhere.
  • We are open to many themes, styles, and forms. We enjoy the succinct; your honed dagger into the heart of this world. Even some experimental and avant-garde will be considered. Surprise and entertain us so we won't forget your name. We will not accept aphorisms, fan fiction, erotica, or any racial/religious/gender/nationality slurs unless you identify with such.
  • No submission fees except for our annual chapbook contest and voluntary ‘tip jar’ categories.
