We are always open for general submissions. 

PIGEON PAGES SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES

In widening our literary nest to include an online publication, we hope to uplift voices who aren't always encouraged to sing loudly. We want to be carried away on the wings of your work whether it's fiction or creative nonfiction. (While we love our flock of poets, we are not accepting any poetry at this time.)

Rather than having you send work through an antiquated method (like carrier pigeon) we have moved to Submittable. This site allows us to keep better track of your pieces so that we're not hunting for breadcrumbs in our emails. It also allows you to follow the flight pattern of your submission from "received" to "in process" and hopefully to "accepted". 

Here are our Dos and Don'ts to help you rise in the pecking order of the general submissions:

DO submit pieces of prose that are 4,000 words or less

DON'T forget your page numbers and word count or send us work riddled with typos and grammatical errors

DO send us work you're excited about
 

We do not take lightly the trust and support a writer shows by sending us their work. In return we want to take the time to fully consider each piece. We appreciate your patience to allow us to do that. (Although if you haven't heard a peep from us in twelve weeks, please feel free to get in touch.)
