HeartWood, an online literary magazine in association with West Virginia Wesleyan’s Low-Residency MFA program, publishes twice yearly, in April and October. Our inaugural issue will go live April 2017.
We accept submissions year round through Submittable, and welcome previously unpublished poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, from both established and emerging writers. We do love Appalachian voices, but we enthusiastically encourage writers from all backgrounds to submit.
What We Want:
We are interested in writing that pushes into, dares to reveal, its own truth, that takes emotional risks, that gets to the heart of the matter.
Simultaneous submissions are fine, provided you notify us if the work is accepted elsewhere.
We also welcome queries from Appalachian artists (writers, visual artists, musicians, performers, folk artists, etc) interested in being included in our Appalachian Arts section.
Prose submissions, fiction or nonfiction, should be 3000 words or less.
Fiction: Fiction submissions may include short stories, flash fiction, or novel excerpts if the excerpt can stand alone. You may submit more than one piece of flash fiction, as long as the total word count does not exceed 3000 words.
Creative Nonfiction: We’re open to a wide range of nonfiction, with the exception of academic articles, or that which would be considered more traditionally journalistic. Personal essay, memoir, lyric, literary journalism, or some blurring in between, are all acceptable.
Poetry: Poets should submit no more than 3-5 single-spaced poems at a time. Include all poems in a single document for upload. Lyric, narrative, experimental, prose poems–we’re open to all variations of the poetic voice.
Surprise us. Make us think. Make us feel. Make our hearts race.
Appalachian Arts Interviews
We also welcome queries from Appalachian artists (writers, visual artists, musicians, performers, folk artists, etc) interested in being included in our Appalachian Arts section. We define Appalachian artists as an artist who is heavily influenced by the Appalachian region and its traditions, history, and people. At HeartWood, we are looking for artists who take these traditions and speak to them in a new and unexpected way.
To query about possible inclusion in the Appalachian Arts section: Submit the following in one document (doc, docx) through the Appalachian Arts link on our Submittable page:
- Artist bio
- Artist statement addressing what being an “Appalachian artist” means to you, how you uniquely define yourself as an Appalachian artist, and how your connection to Appalachia as you see/define it connects (or doesn’t) to your work.
- At least one link to where artwork or samples can be seen/heard (artist website, other publications, YouTube, etc).
If we’re interested, based on the query, editors will email requesting additional information and work sample.
What We’ll Do
Submissions will be responded to within three months. If you haven’t heard from us after three months, feel free to inquire by sending us a note through Submittable. If your work is accepted, HeartWood acquires first North American rights. All rights revert to the author upon publication, but we do ask for first publication attribution in any future publications. We also reserve the right to include accepted pieces in any future anthologies or promotions. If we have passed on a submission, please wait 6 months before submitting again. Regrettably, time being as it is, we are unable offer feedback on submissions.
As much as we would love to be able to pay our contributors, unfortunately we are not able to do so. This is a labor of love for all of us, and we will do our best to honor and promote your work.
(Please note: We regret that current or past employees, current or past students, and alumni of WVWC are not eligible for publication in HeartWood, but we wish you much luck with your work elsewhere.)
Thanks to Paul McVeigh for sharing this call.
“Send any materials that you wish to have considered for publication in (the) Squawk Back—preferably as attachments in .doc, .rtf, .txt, or .odt format; or copy-pasted in the body of an email—but under no circumstances as .wps files or PDFs, and preferably not .docx’s—to…..
We read year round. All first-time submitters will hear back from us within two weeks. Those previously published in Squawk Back will wait a bit longer, as their submissions do, unfortunately, go to the bottom of a pile, owing to that we try very hard to feature new contributors in every issue.
We primarily publish fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. We do not publish plays or screenplays, but we may consider monologues. We will consider excerpts from unpublished novels, poetry collections &c, but please do not submit entire books.
No individual prose submission should exceed ten-thousand words in length. For submitters of poems, we’d prefer it if you kept it under ten pieces per submission. Multiple-poem submissions go in one document or are pasted into the body of one email.
Upon acceptance for publication, submitted pieces which appear in their entirety on personal blogs either Must Be Removed from those pages or replaced with excerpts and/or links to their new home in Squawk Back.
Upon submitting your work, you hereby grant (the) Squawk Back a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual and irrevocable license to use, reproduce, distribute, modify and display your content for any purpose, including without limitation promoting and redistributing part or all of the site. Works submitted to Squawk Back, whether officially or unofficially copyrighted, will remain the full intellectual property of their authors. We are far less interested in exploiting emergent literary voices than providing them with a louder box with which to squawk.”
