--Submissions will be accepted from August 15 to October 20 and from January 15 to March 15.
--There is no word limit, but keep in mind that space limitations make longer work (over, say, 7,000 words) more difficult for us to publish.
--We ask that contributors wait at least a year after publication before submitting new work.
--Please submit no more than one story at a time. (If you are submitting flash fiction, you may submit up to three pieces in a single document.)
--Simultaneous submissions are welcome; please just notify us right away (and withdraw your story) if the work is accepted elsewhere.
--We will do everything possible to read, deliberate on, and respond to your work promptly, usually within eight weeks. If you have not heard from us in five months (or four, if you're feeling antsy), feel feel free to contact us about the status of your submission. We promise we don’t mind.
--We really, really wish we could pay our contributors. At this time, the Editors' Prize winners receive $500. Otherwise, we pay in copies. Extremely wonderful copies. We will also boast about you and your work to the world.
--Rights revert to the author upon publication. Please acknowledge Jabberwock Review if your story subsequently appears in an anthology or book.
--We do not publish work by current students, faculty or staff of Mississippi State University.
We look forward to reading your work!
