The “Broad River Review” Welcomes Submissions for Spring 2012 Issue Journal Showcases Original Poetry, Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, and Cover Art.

broad river reviewBOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— The “Broad River Review” is calling for submissions of original poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction for its Spring 2012 issue. Visual artists are also encouraged to submit samples for possible cover art.  The submission postmark deadline is Nov. 1, 2011.

Writers have two avenues for submission, either a general submission or a submission to “The Rash Awards” writing contests, which offer $500 prizes in Fiction and Poetry.  The Fiction contest is judged by Silas House, the award-winning author of four novels, two plays, and a creative nonfiction book about social protest (silashouse.weebly.com).  The Poetry contest is judged by Cathy Smith Bowers, who has won several awards for her four books of poetry.

All general submissions and contest submissions received before the deadline will be considered for publication.  However, only official entries for “The Rash Awards” will be eligible for the prize awards.  Contest submissions must be accompanied by an entry fee of $15.

Poetry submissions are restricted to five poems, with no more than ten pages total per submission.  Fiction and nonfiction submissions must be no more than 5,000 words.  All submissions must be typed.  The editors welcome submissions which have been simultaneously offered to other publications, but writers are expected to notify the editorial staff if the work is accepted elsewhere.

For complete submission guidelines and contest rules, email the editors at broadriverreview@gardner-webb.edu, or visit broadriverreview.org.

The “Broad River Review” is the official literary magazine of Gardner-Webb University.  The “Review” is proud to offer an outlet for our undergraduate students, faculty, staff, and local community members, and each year, the editors of the “Broad River Review” recognize certain undergraduate students for outstanding achievement in poetry and fiction.  Since 2002, we have made a conscious effort to broaden our scope to include regional and national writers. The “Broad River Review” is perfect bound and published annually in late spring.
