"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Brand New Litmag Seeking Submissions

That Literary Review

About THAT

THAT Literary Review is affiliated with the Creative Writing Program, the Department of English and Philosophy, and the College of Arts and Sciences at Auburn University at Montgomery. Published annually, THAT will be available online with print copies available at additional cost.

Submission Guidelines

All manuscripts should be in 12-point type, preferably Times Roman. All poems should be submitted in a single document. Fiction must be double-spaced, poetry single-spaced. Please send us your work as a .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .rtf file via the Submittable portal below. We do not accept submissions by post.

Our reporting time is three months; if you have not heard from us by then, feel free to query us at editor@thatliteraryreview.com.

The author’s name, address, telephone number, email address, and approximate word count should be typed at the top of the first page; all other pages should include the page number and the author’s last name in the header.


We’re looking for excellently written fiction between 100 and 5,000 words in length.
It should be surprising, relentlessly engaging, fun, and humming with vibrancy. Include compelling characters, lively but minimal dialogue, and plots charting the unexpected.


The poetry that we prefer is alive and idiosyncratic and that opens new vistas to the reader. We stay away from rhyming poetry, conventional forms, and love poetry unless brilliantly revisited. Three poems may be submitted (as a single document) at a time, with a total maximum of twenty pages.

General Guidelines

– We are interested only in work that has not appeared previously in either electronic or print format.

– Submit only one story or three poems at one time. If you have material under consideration with THAT, please do not submit additional work until you have heard back from us.

– Simultaneous submissions are permissible, but notify us if the work you’ve sent to us has been accepted elsewhere.

– It is recommended that all interested writers take a look at a sample issue of THAT. It really helps.

-THAT acquires first serial rights, including both print and electronic rights. Copyright remains with the author.


Authors published in THAT will receive a print copy of the issue in which they appear.
