- We welcome all forms of writing, all themes, all styles.
- Please submit no more than five poems at a time.
- We ask that contributors wait at least a year after publication before submitting new work.
- Simultaneous submissions are welcome; please notify us right away, and withdraw your work, if it 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 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 work 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- We do not publish work by current students, faculty or staff of Mississippi State University.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!
