580 Split 56

About

580 Split is a journal of arts and letters founded in 1998 by graduate students of the Literatures and Languages Department at Mills College. We publish fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and art with an eye for writing that is innovative, risk-taking, and timely. Our name comes from the crisscrossing and splitting highway ramps, overpasses, and interchanges near Mills College. It represents the rich cultural and literary interchange that Oakland incubates like no other city in America.

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.
