About

We’re proud of CutBank‘s forty years as Montana’s foremost literary magazine, founded in 1973 by the Creative Writing program at the University of Montana and helmed initially by favorite literary son William Kittredge. We publish two print issues a year of compelling poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction by established writers and new voices alike. We’re global in scope, but with a regional bias. Over the years, we’ve been privileged to feature work by Wendell Berry, Louise Erdrich, Richard Hugo, Seamus Heaney, James Welch, Patricia Goedicke, James Lee Burke, Chris Offutt, Aimee Bender, Steve Almond, and a number of other exciting up and coming writers whose work we’re fond of. That’s the joy, we think, of both publishing and reading a publication like CutBank: discovering and developing a fondness for new work.

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.
