Submission Guidelines

Gravel is presently accepting original, unpublished work for its online literary journal. In particular, we are interested in fiction and creative nonfiction anywhere from 25 to 2,500 words in length, poetry (no more than 5 poems per submission), photo essays, artwork, comics, video, hybrid—look, we’ve got eclectic tastes here. Don’t be afraid to submit works that defy form or genre. We cannot pay you, but if it makes you feel better, we’re not getting paid, either.


Please read us before submitting your work.


We accept simulataneous submissions, but beg of you to notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.


Use Submittable to withdraw your work.


We will be updating work on a continuous basis throughout the summer, then posting monthly issues starting September.




Authors retain their own rights and copyright to their works. Gravel only requests one-time, nonexclusive rights. Work will remain archived indefinitely, unless author/artist ask that it be removed from our website.
