About

Ecotone, the award-winning literary magazine published at UNC Wilmington, is known for emphasizing the deep importance of place in contemporary writing. We aim to reimagine place-based literature, and to publish writing and art that cross genres and seek out edges. An ecotone is a transition zone between two adjacent ecological communities, containing the characteristic species of each. Our contributors embrace these places of danger and opportunity, exploring the ecotones between landscapes, literary genres, scientific and artistic disciplines, modes of thought. In our tenth year, Ecotone's work continues to receive accolades and awards from the Best American, O. Henry, PEN, and Pushcart Prize series, among others. We also continue to encourage work that extends beyond the themes of traditional nature writing, offering provocative and complex literature and art to challenge readers of all backgrounds and literary predilections.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. Look for the fees icon.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
