Submissions are open until August 1, 2017. 

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 email or postal mail.

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! But 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 multiple submissions in the same genre while a decision from us on the first submission is still outstanding. We kindly request that you do not send work more than twice 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.

Ends on August 1, 2017

We're open to all styles of poetry in free verse and traditional forms and do not adhere to any particular aesthetic. 

Submit up to 4 poems formatted into one document (.doc, .docx, or .rtf), with one poem per page. Format your poems as you would like them to appear on the page. Please do not number the pages.

Do not submit poems individually; doing so will cause them to appear as multiple submissions, which will not be read.

Please include a cover letter in the cover-letter section with your contact information, poem titles, and a bio of 50 words or less, written in the third person. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please leave a note in Submittable if any of your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work. (We consider self-published work that's publicly accessible without a log-in, such as on a blog or Facebook, to be published.) Submitting your work is an affirmation that you are the original author and that you retain the rights to your work.

We aim to respond within 60 days, and often much sooner. Please wait for a response before sending more work, and we kindly ask that you do not send work more than twice per reading period unless requested. Excess submissions will be returned unread.
