Transient is currently working on our first print anthology—a best-of-the-best from our first year! But don’t fret, we are still accepting submissions, via our Submissions Manager, for our fifth online issue (due out Spring 2014). (If you have any difficulty accessing our Submission Manager, please email for further assistance.)

General Guidelines:

  • While we accept submissions on a rolling basis, in order to be reviewed for a particular publication submissions will be due (60) days prior to online publication. (Submissions for the third issue will be due by February 15, 2013.)
  • Document must be a .doc, .docx, .txt, or .rtf file, though .doc files are preferred.
  • Formatting: double spaced, 10 or 12 point font is acceptable.
  • Personal information — including your full name, contact information, genre, and the poem(s)/pieces word count — should be provided in your cover letter only. Submissions containing personal identifiers will not be read.
  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted; however, we ask that you email us immediately should a submitted piece be accepted elsewhere.


  • No more than (5) poems may be submitted for review at a time. If you are submitting multiple poems, please upload them as one document, with page breaks in between each poem.


  • No more than (1) fiction/non-fiction piece may be submitted for review at a time.
  • Additionally, while word count restrictions are loose (unless otherwise specified), the pieces that prove to be the best for publication are no less than 1,000 words and no more than 3,000 words. (These are merely suggested guidelines and are not required for submission or consideration.)

When we accept a story for publication, we are purchasing first electronic publication rights. This means that once we’ve published your story, you are free to include it in your own collection.
