Submissions are currently closed. We will begin reading for our Winter / Spring 2018 issue on November 1.

Dunes Review guidelines:

We welcome submissions from writers at all stages of their careers. We are open to all styles of writing and do not adhere to any particular aesthetic. 

Artists and photographers interested in submitting cover art or art appearing within the body of the journal may query the editor at dunesreview@michwriters.org. 

***

Submissions are accepted only via Submittable. We do not consider work sent through postal mail or email. Any submissions sent through email will not be read or responded to. 

Please include a cover letter in the cover-letter section with your contact information, title(s) of your work, and a third-person bio of 50 words or less. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine. If any of your work is accepted elsewhere, congratulations! Please leave a note in Submittable to withdraw your piece.

We do not accept previously published work. (Work that has appeared on your blog, Facebook page, or that is publicly available online without a login is also considered published.) Submitting your work is an affirmation that you are the original author and that you retain the rights to your work.

You may send work in more than one genre. However, please don't send work more than once per genre per reading period unless requested. Excess submissions will be returned unread.

We aim to respond within 60-90 days, and often much sooner. 

Due to the volume of submissions received, we regret that we are unable to give feedback.

Payment comes in the form of two copies of the journal. We also invite contributors to read at the issue's launch celebration in Traverse City, Michigan. We do nominate selected work for the Pushcart Prize.
