Please read submission guidelines located under the 'Submit' tab on The Adroit Journal's website.

We are currently OPEN to submissions, and will be open until August 15, 2017.

Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.

*Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter.* 

Please submit up to eight poems in one document via our Submittable page (adroit.submittable.com). We encourage you to submit prose, art, and/or photography in addition to poetry.

Please note that you are encouraged to send us as much work over the course of the reading period as you'd like--we only ask that you not send more than eight poems at any given time for us to read. As soon as we respond to the first batch, you may send us another, and so on and so forth.

N.B. PLEASE SUBMIT MULTIPLE POEMS IN ONE DOCUMENT. 

Information regarding the annual student Adroit Prizes for Poetry and Prose will be released later on this fall.

Happy submitting, and thanks in advance!

Please submit up to three prose pieces in one document via our Submittable page (adroit.submittable.com). We invite you to submit poetry, art, and/or photography in addition to prose.

Please note that you are encouraged to send us as much work over the course of the reading period as you'd like--we only ask that you not send more than three prose pieces at any given time for us to read. As soon as we respond to the first batch, you may send us another, and so on and so forth.

Please submit UP TO EIGHT full-color images (unless intentionally greyscale in the first place) via our submission manager (adroit.submishmash.com). Please make all image submissions .jpg and as high quality as possible. Image scans or screenshots are alright for submission (for the purpose of considerably lowering the file size), but please have access to higher-quality versions the art/photos prior to submission.  Submitted art may have previously been recognized for an award, but should not be previously published. Also, we DO accept simultaneous art submissions, but expect you to withdraw your submission(s) if accepted elsewhere promptly after the outside acceptance.
