Hi there, friend! You are considering submitting to Drunken Boat, and that's great, because we only accept submissions via this system.

General submissions are open as follows:
Poetry: 3/1 - 5/31; 9/1 - 11/30
All other genres: 11/1 - 1/1; 3/1 - 5/1; 7/1 - 9/1.

To cover operational costs, we must charge a $3 fee for each submission. Plus, it's easier for everyone (and the environment) to save that in printing and mailing costs.

We strongly encourage you to take a look at previous issues and see if you think your work is a good fit.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but ask that you notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. You can use this handy system to withdraw, or leave a note on your submission.

We only consider previously unpublished work. That includes work published on personal blogs.

We aim for a two-month response time, but we're only human. If it's been more than 3 months, or you have other questions, please send an email with the subject "Query" to editor @ drunkenboat.com

If, for reasons of financial hardship, you cannot afford to pay the submission fee, please send us an email.
