Submissions Reopen August 1st
Willawaw Journal hosts two month-long submission windows:
August for the Fall Issue
and February for the Spring Issue
No work will be considered outside of these submission windows and all submissions must use the Duotrope Submsision Manager. Yes, this requires that you create a Duotrope account for your first submission in order to use DuoSuMa, but there is no charge for this.
A new poet laureate prompt will be posted in late July. General submissions are always welcome.
How to Submit?
Poetry and Art Submission Guidelines
Please submit up to five poems (previously unpublished) or up to ten images of original artwork. Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please notify us immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else. For prose poetry, please limit to 500 words or less.
To submit, please use this link:________________________________
- POETS may include up to five poems which must appear within a single doc., one poem per page or pages.
- No revisions after submission though there will be an opportunity to proofread just before the issue is launched.
- ARTISTS should send low rez images of their work (not to exceed 300 dpi) and include titles, materials, dimensions, and a brief artist’s statement with bio.
- Indicate in the cover letter “box” whether you want to use initials or a different name to credit your poem or artwork.
- Include a short bio., in the cover letter, with up to three to five publication venues and no more than one link to other work. It would please the editor if you place yourself on the world map (state, region, country, etc.).
- The journal is free to all and there are no reading fees. However, the online submissions manager is expected to be fully integrated by the Fall submission window and this may include a small fee. Unfortunately, there is no payment to contributors at this time.
Note: Cover Art is drawn from the Submissions and will be used for promotional purposes.
Copyright returns to the poet or artist upon publication. The journal retains the non-exclusive right to hold the text or image in the archives.
