We’re not going to make an extended metaphor or long-winded abstraction of what we want. Send us something good. Poydras Review is a 100% online journal. All accepted submissions including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama and art will appear online.

We charge a $3 reading fee for all submissions. This helps defray the cost of the online submission manager, advertising, website upkeep. In short, this small sum helps to keep the journal running. The cost to writers is the same you would pay to the postal service for hard copy submissions. After credit card and submission manager fees the amount Poydras receives is only $1.86.

Please allow 3 months for response before following up. We won't insult you with notes. Remember to log your submission and response on Duotrope to help other writers find the market for their stories.

You'll see we've added a Terms and Conditions portion to the submission form, mostly because new writers who don't know the process have a lot of questions. It essentially says the following:

  • We do not accept previously published work. 
  • Like every journal we reserve First Serial Rights of your piece and after publication rights revert back to the author or artist.
  • Simultaneous submissions are fine, granted you email us or withdraw your work on Submittable immediately if it is accepted elsewhere.
  • We do not provide any compensation to authors at this time. The editors are also unpaid. All reading fees sustain the journal.
