The life and work of Jeanne Leiby (1967-2011) are remembered in our prose/graphic narrative chapbook contest and series. As editor of The Florida Review from 2004 through 2007, she breathed new life into the magazine. It was Jeanne who brought comics to TFR, initiated the journal’s first web site, published the special 30th anniversary issue, and established CRW 4724, the course that would go on to teach editorial skills to hundreds of undergraduate students at UCF. She also loved her work with both graduate students and with emerging authors. She went on from The Florida Review to become the first female editor of The Southern Review at Louisiana State University before her tragic death. She is fondly remembered for her boundless energy, love of contemporary literature, and intellectual vitality. We hope she would find solace in the publication of these chapbooks in the genres she worked in and championed throughout her too-short career.

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.
