"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


Friday Call for Submissions Love!


Gravel Literary Magazine


Send Your Unforgettable Work

Online submissions accepted July-May.

Gravel is accepting submissions of comics, graphics, art, photography, creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. We are publishing book reviews of newly released or forthcoming books.We are also interested in author interviews. Please don’t send us previously published work. We want work that will shake us up a bit. Work that will make us question our personal beliefs. Work that three days later will make us laugh once again. Submit here: gravel.submittable.com/submit.



This magazine is produced by the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Arkansas at Monticello editorial staff.



We are presently accepting original, unpublished works (including posting it on any website blog, deviant art, anywhere it can be found on the web). In particular, we are interested in fiction and creative nonfiction anywhere from 25 to 2,500 words in length, poetry (no more than 3 poems per submission, and you can submit all of them at the same time on Submittable), photo essays, artwork, comics, video, hybrid—look, we’ve got eclectic tastes here. Don’t be afraid to submit works that defy form or genre. We cannot pay you, but if it makes you feel better, we’re not getting paid either.

If your work is accepted, we will request an image that represents you (you can interpret this however you’d like) to be included with your bio.

Please keep your images below 5 MB for bios and art submissions. If for some odd reason we need a larger image, we will contact you.

We do not reprint work published elsewhere, in any form, this includes work that has been published in print magazines, blogs, or anywhere online. It’s disheartening to publish something, then realize that it is posted somewhere else.

Please do not submit new work until after you hear from us regarding your first submission. If your work is accepted for publication, please wait 6 months before submitting again. We like to showcase as many writers and artists as possible.

We do not accept submissions from current UAM MFA students.

We don’t charge our readers a fee to submit, but we get charged after we have 300 submissions. It helps us if writers submit their submissions all at once, not separately, because that can increase our operations costs.
