Shark Reef 9

About

SHARK REEF was launched in 2001 to give voice to emerging as well as established writers of the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Now, in collaboration with independent publisher, Iris Graville, SHARK REEF offers the same opportunity to all serious writers committed to producing original writing of high quality – regardless of where they live. Our literary magazine is for writers whose perspectives are often overlooked in the mainstream but whose voices are strong, not driven by publishing trends and nuanced with a kind of truth that comes with first-hand experience.

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.
