Online Guidelines: Our MFA program is multi-genre and interdisciplinary, and so we are excited to receive hybrid work in any genre.
We accept fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and short plays, performance audio, as well as video literature (cinepoetry, video essay, art films, spoken word, etc.), photography, and other visual artwork on an ongoing basis to be featured on our website. WE DO NOT ACCEPT REVIEWS, INTERVIEWS, OR EXCERPTS. Read print and online guidelines carefully, as there are differences in what is required and accepted.
Formatting: We accept written submissions up to 1,500 words. For video or audio submissions, please keep them to five minutes or less. For visual art, we accept up to 5 pieces.
Please include a brief, two sentence bio (fifty words) to run with all work, should your work be accepted. Include your social media handles, if there are any you want to share.
For fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or plays, send your submission through GOOGLE DOCS OR WORD ONLY. Do not submit pieces as a PDF or Dropbox link. For video/audio, please send a link to your piece(s) on DropBox or Google Drive. For art/photography, include links to your work on DropBox, your website, Instagram, etc. Fit images to a 1000 x 1000-pixel box and save to medium JPEG quality to keep the file sizes small.
Submission Deadline: Thin Air Online submissions are free and open year-round. Thank you for submitting! DO NOT SUBMIT THE SAME MATERIAL TO THE WEBSITE AS YOU SUBMIT TO THE MAGAZINE. Again, read both guidelines carefully, as each accept different things. Web submissions will only be accepted via Submittable. A team of editors review submissions throughout the year, and we vow to do our best to respond in a timely fashion. Response rate times vary from 1-3 months, depending on the time of year and volume of submissions. We look forward to seeing your work!
Reminders: In addition to these guidelines, please read our General Submission Guidelines. We only consider unpublished work. Please do not submit material previously published in anthologies, chapbooks, online, or on personal websites (including FB, Twitter, Insta, Flickr, blogs, etc.). Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but let us know immediately if a submission has been accepted elsewhere.
