Submit to Columbia Journal

Columbia Journal seeks submissions of poetry, nonfiction, fiction, art and translation for both print and online. They’re in search of innovative, outward-looking voices, stories that break boundaries and language that lingers.

To get a sense of the kind of work they have published recently, they recommend reading the spring 2018 issue of the Journal.

Manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced, with numbered pages. Poetry may be single-spaced. Please submit 1-3 poems or up to 5,000 words of prose at a time, and do not submit more than once per submissions cycle.

All submissions must be sent through Submittable. Please do not submit to both print and online. The editors will share submissions if they feel your submission is more suitable for the other medium. You may follow up on Submittable if you haven’t heard from them after six months.

Regular submissions, online, nonfiction, poetry and art: September 1-October 15

Regular submissions, print: September 15–October 31

2018 Winter Contest: November 1–December 15
