Poetry, Prose and Art on the Impact of Military Service
Submissions accepted year-round.
Collateral is an online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington Tacoma. We publish poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual arts concerned with the impact of military service beyond the combat zone. The voices of those more indirectly impacted by war sometimes go unheard, and our journal seeks to capture the “collateral” impact of military service in all its forms. We publish work by veterans, reserve/active duty soldiers, and civilians every May and November; we accept submissions year-round through our website. Send up to 5 poems, 3,000 words of prose, or 7 images.
