Each of our editors independently reads each of our submissions. We do not use readers. For that reason, response times vary, unless noted explicitly in category-specific guidelines on Submittable .

We read submissions for the journal September 1 through December 1 and March 1 through June 1.

We read chapbooks year-round.  

We accept simultaneous submissions and ask that you get in touch with us if work you have submitted is accepted at another publication.

Queries should be addressed to thetjournal@gmail.com.
