Front Porch accepts flash fiction, short stories, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Please submit only one piece of fiction and nonfiction at a time (up to or around 5500 words), and no more than five poems at a time as DOC. or RTF. files only. You must submit via our online system.
Our response time is generally 3-4 months, but may be longer. We accept unsolicited simultaneous submissions, given that you promptly inform us upon acceptance elsewhere. We do not accept previously published material. Front Porch asks for first serial rights and the right to keep your work in our archives; all other rights revert back to the author after publication. We also ask that authors mention that their work first saw publication in Front Porch in any future reprints.
Please note: We only accept electronic submissions via our online system. Paper submissions will not be read or returned.
We encourage publicists to send us catalogues and review copies of forthcoming titles. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries. You may send literary fiction, poetry, and nonfiction books for review consideration to:
Department of English
Texas State University
