You may pay a voluntary submission fee to expedite our reading of your manuscript. Payment does not increase your chances for acceptance, but it does go a long way to help us sustain our quarterly magazine filled with thwackingly fine cutting-edge fiction, poetry, essays, and artwork.
$10 submissions will receive an expedited reading with a guaranteed response (accept or decline) within two weeks (generally faster and often in less than one week.)
Submit up to 5 poems in a single document. If you need to withdraw one or more poems in the batch:
1. Log into your Submittable account and go to your Submissions tab.
2. Click on the Activity tab.
3. In the text box tell us which poem(s) you are withdrawing.
$10.00 submissions will receive a response within two weeks.
$25.00 submissions will receive a response within two weeks plus a personal comment from a Cleaver editor.
