The editorial team considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and creative nonfiction received between February 1 and August 1.  We do not consider previously published work.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable provided that you let us know that your work has been accepted elsewhere.  (Please contact us via email and withdraw your submission from our online submission manager.)

When submitting your work, please follow these specifications:

  • Send one prose piece or no more than five poems. (Works longer than 4,000 words are not ordinarily considered.)
  • Include a cover letter with your name, address, email, the title of your submission(s), and a 2-4 sentence bio written in third-person.
  • Include your name and email address on each page of your submission(s).

From the editor: “We are looking for writing that avoids the didactic, the melodramatic, the trite, the obvious.  Eschew tricks and gimmicks.  We want writing that invites rereading.”

Submit your work via our online submissions manager here: Windhover: A Journal of Christian Literature
