Submissions are welcome from 1 June-1 September and from 1 December-1 March. Please follow specific genre guidelines when formatting and uploading your submission and limit your cover letter to 150 words or less. Full guidelines can be accessed by clicking on the plus sign located at the top right of each genre category listed below. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered.

Although we do accept simultaneous submissions, we do not accept work that has been previously published either in print or online.

If work is accepted for publication, Interim obtains First North American Serial Rights and, for the period of one year, Electronic Rights. After that time, copyright reverts to the author. Writers whose work appears in the annual print volume will receive one free contributor copy of that volume and will receive a discount on any additional copies ordered.

You will see that we're now charging a reading fee for all submissions. This is simply to defray the costs of our expanding publishing operations, which include producing our quarterly online issues and the annual print volume of the journal, hosting live and online events, and developing and launching the many new projects we're working on across content platforms.

We appreciate your continued interest and support and look forward to spending time with your work.

Interim's latest print issue is an all women issue that features work by Christine Bettis, Ana Christina Caesar (trans. Brenda Hillman), Robert Desnos (trans. Shannon Austin), Brenda Hillman, Alice Notley, and Sasha Steensen.
