FLARE: The Flagler Review 30


FLARE is a literary journal published by students of Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida. FLARE seeks to publish both up-and-coming and established writers. Accepting of both the traditional and experimental in the poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama, and screenplay genres, we strive to showcase a variety of colorful, vibrant works from passionate writers. If it will throw us around the room, we want to see it. FLARE seeks works with power and thought, works that linger long after they are read. We accept fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, and art.
FICTION: FLARE looks for fiction that showcases evocative storytelling, fresh perspectives and intelligent voices. Typically, we feature literary, traditional fiction, but we welcome experimental fiction for consideration. We generally do not accept genre fiction such as horror, sci-fi or fantasy unless it transcends the genre.
NONFICTION: We are open to any style or genre of nonfiction, but we are most drawn to work that tells a story, features narrative cohesion, and offers insight into a culture, situation, event, phenomenon or observation.
POETRY: FLARE seeks to publish the highest caliber poetry we can find. We place a high value on fresh, organic, poetic language. We also highly appreciate and encourage experimentation with form. We are interested in anything that throws us around the room and makes us reevaluate our perspectives.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
