FHR cover from last year



Flint Hills Review is an annual publication with a national circulation.  We publish work with a particular interest in region, including regions of place, regions of ethnicity, regions of gender, and regions of memory.  We welcome poetry, short fiction, nonfiction of literary quality, and art which can be successfully reproduced into black and white photography. FHR receives support from the Creative Writing Program at Emporia State University, located in the rolling green Flint Hills grasslands of Kansas. 

General Guidelines for Submissions

Flint Hills Review reads January-March each year and appears every December. The magazine is 120-200 pages, perfect bound, for a circulation of 250-350. Average response time is 6-9 months.

Genre guidelines:

Poems: send 3-6 poems
Short Stories: send one story, either a short short (1-3 pages), or a traditional length story (7-25 pages)
Short Plays: send plays 10 minutes in length, or shorter
Nonfiction: send one creative work (5-25 pages)
Artwork: send a CD or originals (1-10 works), which we cannot return. Black and white work is preferred, as color is only available for the cover. Note: we print on normal, matte, made-for-print paper

Acceptance pays in one free copy of the magazine, and you may purchase additional copies at a discounted price.

The magazine is open to beginning and experienced writers who exhibit excellence in terms of composition and craft. We have recently selected works by Elizabeth Dodd, Kim Stafford, and Brian Daldorph.

Although we do accept simultaneous submissions, as a courtesy, please notify us at once if your work is accepted elsewhere.
