Clackamas Literary Review accepts submissions of poetry, prose, and possibility texts between September 1st and December 31st each year. Per reading period, please send only one piece of prose or possibility (4,000 words maximum), or up to three poems. We do not accept unsolicited submissions that have been previously published in print or online.
We accept electronic submissions through Submittable for a small reading fee ($3).
We also accept physical manuscripts the old fashioned way (with no reading fee!). These must be word processed. When mailing your manuscript to us, please include a cover letter containing your contact information (name, mailing address, email address, and phone number) as well as a one-paragraph bio. On the manuscript itself, please make sure your name and an email address is on every physical page. If your work is accepted, you will be contacted via email for an electronic file.
Our mailing address is:
Clackamas Literary Review
Clackamas Community College
19600 Molalla Avenue
Oregon City, Oregon 97045
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please promptly inform us if your submitted work is accepted elsewhere. If you have work with us that has been accepted somewhere else, please withdraw it in Submittable (electronic submissions only) or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mailed manuscripts with postmarks outside our reading period will not be opened.
We try to respond to submissions within three months of the submission period.
