Submissions are now taken all year long!
Submissions after February 1 will be considered for the following year's edition, as long as the submitter remains enrolled in an undergraduate program.
Who can submit?
Students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program of study at colleges and universities anywhere in the world are eligible. Works must be original and previously unpublished either in print or online, including on personal websites, blogs, and social media. We welcome simultaneous submissions but ask that you notify us immediately by e-mailing the address below upon acceptance by another journal. Green Blotter acquires first serial rights and internet rights to publish on our online archives only. Copyright reverts to the author upon publication. Contributors receive two copies of the issue in which their work appears.
Submit all works as e-mail attachments with your last name, genre, and title in the subject line, e.g. “Smith-Poetry-Title.” (Please indicate "Untitled" if there is no title. Submissions containing multiple works should use the filename in the title.) If you are submitting pieces in more than one genre, please separate submission emails by genre. Do not make multiple submissions in any genre until you have heard back regarding prior submissions. In your e-mail, include your full name, contact information (e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number), a brief third-person bio, and the institution where you study and your year of study (first-year, sophomore, etc.) or anticipated date of graduation. Because we only accept work from writers currently enrolled in undergraduate institutions, it is necessary to include that information with your submission. Do not include your name (or any class/assignment-specific headers, reflections, or other identifying materials) in the actual manuscript itself.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or
