Thank you for your interest in Grist: A Journal of the Literary Arts!

We read for our ProForma Contest every spring from March 15 - April 30 and for general submissions from May 15 - August 15. Our print issue is published annually in early spring, with each accompanying online issue published throughout the preceding fall.

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.

Please submit all work in Times New Roman, size 12 font. 

For more information on our submission guidelines, please visit: www.gristjournal.com/submissions

With the growing concern over COVID-19 affecting not only our health and well-being but our finances, Grist wants to help support writers and artists by offering twenty free submissions to our annual ProForma contest. 

We realize that many of you have already paid to submit and thus could not benefit from this, and we sincerely apologize; we are reacting to this pandemic as quickly and fairly as we can, and we're truly sorry for any troubles or inconvenience this may cause you. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

***

Please remove all identifying information (name, etc.) from both the file name and from the manuscript itself.

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 We cannot refund the fee if the submission is withdrawn.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 is eligible to enter. Additionally, close associations with Grist staff and former students of our final judge Joy Priest also ineligible.

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