Tupelo Quarterly 199

A project of Tupelo Press (see other related projects)

About

Tupelo Press discovers luminous writers, gives each author the vessel of a beautiful book, and shares their passions with as many readers as possible. Tupelo’s list speaks to the diversity of influences upon contemporary art and culture, and the Press takes a keen interest in promoting a dialogue between the written and fine arts. In this digital milieu, Tupelo Quarterly extends and expands upon that vision, publishing work by emerging and established writers and artists of many sensibilities and styles. In addition to a stunning poem or story on the page, we want to include work that takes full advantage of the medium. We want to honor the art as received, and to extend the scope of what a literary journal can do. Tupelo Quarterly cultivates generous artistic community, celebrates intellectual curiosity and creative risk, and presumes abundance. We hold the gate open, not closed.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions and does not offer monetary payment for accepted submissions.
Important: Submissions of reviews remain open when other nonfiction submissions are closed.

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…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • 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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
