Revolute Lit: Now Seeking Submissions

A brand-new online publication from the Randolph College MFA program, Revolute Lit is seeking fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and micro reviews for their first issue. Students are involved in every aspect of producing the journal—reading, selecting, editing, marketing, and publishing—and they learn from every part of the experience. Revolute aims to publish the most interesting writing they can find, while at the same time championing emerging writers from underheard groups.

Revolute accepts poetry, fiction, and nonfiction yearly from September 9th through December 9th. They accept micro reviews year-round. Authors may submit once per reading period and can expect a response within one to three months.

Poets may submit up to five poems. Revolute pays $25 per accepted poem, up to five poems. They accept a wide range of forms and styles, including poetry comics, photo poems, video poems, and erasures.

Authors of fiction and creative nonfiction may submit one piece, 7,000 words or fewer. Revolute pays $25 per accepted piece. They accept all kinds of prose, including flash fiction, autofiction, essays, memoires, self-help, and scientific writing.

Revolute Lit also publishes micro book reviews, 300 words or fewer. Authors can submit a “Lost Review”—a review of an outdated or overlooked publication—or a “Found Review”—a review a new or forthcoming title. They publish reviews of poetry books, fiction and nonfiction works, chapbooks, user manuals, travel guides, car manuals, encyclopedias, and so on.

Revolute Lit accepts submissions online, not via email or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
