Dunes Review guidelines:

We will be open for submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and black-and-white artwork and photography for our Summer / Fall 2018 issue from May 1 through June 15.

We welcome submissions from writers, artists, and photographers at all stages of their careers living anywhere in the world. We are open to all styles and aesthetics. 

***

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.

You may send work in more than one genre. However, you may send work only once per genre per reading period. Excess submissions will be declined unread.

We assume work to be finalized upon submission, and accordingly request that you do not withdraw work, revise, and resubmit it during the same reading period.

We do not publish:

  • Previously published work. (Work that has appeared on your blog, Facebook page, or that is publicly available online without a login is considered published.) Submitting your work is an affirmation that you are the original author and that you retain the rights to your work.
  • Unsolicited book reviews
  • Author interviews
  • Journalism or academic writing

We aim to respond within 30-45 days for poetry or 60-90 days for prose, artwork, and photography—and often much sooner. If you have not heard from us after 120 days, feel free to email us at dunesreview@michwriters.org.

Due to the volume of submissions received, we regret that we cannot 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.
