Submission Guidelines

WordFarm publishes collections of poetry, short fiction, essays, and single works of fiction or literary nonfiction.

We have received an overwhelming number of submissions during the last few months, and we have been much delayed in reviewing them. If you sent us your work, please accept our apologies for being slow to reply. We aim to review and respond to everything we've received by the end of December 2016.

Because of this backlog, we will be closed to new submissions for a while. Please check here again in January 2017 for updates.

And, meanwhile, please help us make more room for more good work—like yours! Keep an eye on what we're publishing by joining our Facebook group or following our Twitter feed. And spread the word about WordFarm by reviewing our books, buying them as gifts for friends and family, asking your public library to carry them, or adopting them college-level courses (if you are a teacher). Thanks!
