Submissions – Hayden’s Ferry Review


What a busy couple of weeks. On top of my regular job, I had that amazing workshop to teach last weekend, and the FWA conference the weekend before. I’m glad to be back to my regular schedule, though. I’ve got a ton of ideas for new projects, too, and can’t wait to dig into writing/revising and sending those out. I’m also excited to share that Hayden’s Ferry Review just opened back up for submissions, and they’re on my list! Poets/translators, this call is especially for you.


(Thanks, Twitter!)

Hayden’s Ferry Review is edited by the Creative Writing program at Arizona State University. As with almost all literary journals that fit this description, the staff rotates annually, as well as the overall aesthetic. Send your best poetry and it may be selected for publication in one of their biannual issues. Between issues they also feature work online that doesn’t fit into the print issues.

If you’re writing prose, you’re not excluded. They should be opening soon for prose submissions as well. There’s a chance they might be behind on prose submissions, but I’m sure there’s a good reason that they’re not currently open. Keep checking back!

There is a small reading fee, but subscribers don’t have to pay it. All of the money goes towards supporting their publishing projects, though, so it’s definitely put to good use. The reading fee may also be temporary, so make note of this.

Good luck!
