Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as we are immediately notified if the piece has been accepted elsewhere. We do not consider previously published work. We do not consider work from those currently or recently affiliated with the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

For longer works: no more than 5000 words
For shorter works: no more than 5 pieces (in one document)

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please notify us if the submission is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are also fine, but you will be charged the full reading fee per submission (you can either extend or gift the additional subscription/s). We cannot refund the fee if the submission is withdrawn. 

No one currently or recently affiliated with the University of Tennessee or with the Creative Writing Programs at Texas Christian University or Ashland University is eligible to enter. Additionally, close associations with Grist staff and former students of our final judge Alex Lemon are also ineligible. 

All submissions will also be considered for publication outside of the contest feature.
