Submissions for the Summer/Fall 2016 20th Anniversary Issue of Dunes Review are open through July 15.

Dunes Review guidelines:

Our guidelines are the same no matter the genre: we're looking for work that draws us in from the very first line, with image, with sound, with sense, with lack of sense. We believe that great writing can occur anywhere, anytime, and the topic doesn't matter, only the words, the sounds, the rhythm and cadence.* We're looking for writing that bowls us over, that lifts us up, that takes us places we've never been and shows us ordinary things in ways we've never seen them. We're looking for poems and stories and essays that teach us how to read them and pull us back to their beginnings as soon as we've read their final lines. We're looking for things we can't wait to read again, things we can't wait to share with the nearest person who will listen.

Send us your best work. We'll give it our best attention.

*Though we do have a special interest in writing that is tied to northern Michigan (by author connections and/or subject matter), we accept submissions from anyone, anywhere.

Fussy stuff:

Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please let us know as soon as you can if one of your pieces has been accepted by another publication.

Please do not send multiple regular submissions in one genre within the same reading period. Multiple Shaw Prize contest submissions are fine as long as the $12 fee accompanies each.

Response time is approximately 6-8 weeks. If you have not heard from us after 12 weeks, feel free to query. The best way to contact the editor directly is to email dunesreview@michwriters.org.

Submissions sent by mail will not be returned, and submissions that do not meet our guidelines will not be considered. Electronic submission is required.
