The Carolina Quarterly welcomes unsolicited submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art. Submissions are accepted between March 1st and October 31st through Submittable only. Expect six to twelve months for a decision. We do not reprint previously published work. We do accept simultaneous submissions, expecting that the author will notify us should the work be accepted by another journal. We do not publish work written by employees or students at UNC Chapel Hill. Contributors receive two copies of the issue in which their writing appears. We read all submissions.
We now accept only electronic submissions. There is a small fee for submitting via this service, comparable to the cost of printing and postage. Electronic submissions are better for the environment, easier to keep track of and can be read any time.
