About

The journal's mission is to publish the entire spectrum of today’s fiction, essays, and poetry—from the mainstream to the avant-garde, from the established to the undiscovered writer. The editors are especially interested in original writing that engages in the work of honest communication. We always ask "What's at stake in this writing?" "What's reckoned with that's important for other people to read?" Send your best words our way. We recommend that you read a copy of the journal before sending your work for consideration so that you can see if your writing and Crazyhorse are a good match. The editors read and choose writing ecumenically, publishing newcomers and established writers alike, always on the lookout for writing that doesn't fit the categories.

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.
