About

Introducing our ongoing publication: The Current — making of the Dispenser a new kind of town crier, one that puts every story on the front page. One that celebrates great works by keeping their words in print. Offering what might be deja vu for some as new treasure for others. Great writing doesn't belong up on the shelf. We're looking for submissions of poetry, flash fiction, short stories, and children's works that have been previously published in online or print reviews.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
