Flint Hills Review: Now Seeking Submissions

Flint Hills Review is a well-established print annual produced at Emporia State University. Published and distributed nationally for 24 years, Flint Hills Review has made its mark by redefining “regional writing.” They have a particular interest in writing that explores the Midwest—especially the ways in which ethnicity, gender, and relationships appear in Midwestern culture.

Flint Hills Review is published in print each summer. The thoughtfully designed journal runs anywhere from 75 to 200 pages in length and is circulated to 250 to 350 readers.

Flint Hills Review publishes both emerging and established authors of poetry, fiction, drama, and creative nonfiction. They read submissions from November 1 through March 31 each year, and they accept submissions year-round.

Poets may submit up to six poems. Authors of fiction may submit one short story, seven to 25 pages. Flint Hills Review also accepts flash fiction. Authors of flash fiction may submit up to three flashes, one to three pages each. Authors of creative nonfiction may submit one flash essay, one to three pages, or one traditional-length essay, five to 25 pages.

Submitting authors should include a brief, third-person bio, 75 to 100 words, with their submission. Authors may submit work in more than one genre. Authors published in Flint Hills Review receive one contributor copy of the journal.

Flint Hills Review accepts submissions via email and by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
