Submit one prose piece and/or up to three poems. Include a brief bio.
5/Q accepts work year round, on a rolling basis. If you wish to submit to a particular set of guest editors, be sure to send your submission by the end of the month of that guest editor announcement, otherwise your work will move to the next set of editors for consideration. Guest editors are announced at the beginning of February, May, August, and November.
We cannot consider previously published material, print or web. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please inform us if your work has been accepted elsewhere. If we publish your work, you retain full rights to it, though we do request that you acknowledge 5/Q as the first place to feature the work if it appears elsewhere in the future.
