Please note that we use Submittable for managing our submissions. Rash Award entries and general submissions are accepted through Submittable only. Follow the link at the bottom of the page.

The Broad River Review will be reading general submissions and Rash Award contest entries from February 1 – April 15, 2021. Selected works and contest winners will be published in Volume 52, which will appear in the Fall of 2021. The Broad River Review welcomes submissions of original poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and we also encourage visual artists to submit samples for possible cover art.

Writers have two avenues for submission, either a general submission or a submission to our contests, the Rash Awards, which offer $500 first prizes in both Fiction and Poetry.  Judges will be announced in early August.  All general submissions and contest submissions received during the reading period will be considered for publication.  However, only official entries for the Rash Awards will be eligible for the prize awards.  For details about the contest, please see the Contest Rules.

Poetry submissions are restricted to five poems, with no more ten pages total per submission.  Fiction and nonfiction submissions must be no more than 5,000 words.  Previously published work will not be considered.  Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if our editors are notified immediately that the work has been accepted elsewhere.


We look forward to reading your submissions!
