We’re currently OPEN for submissions in all genres! Please read the submission guidelines before heading over to submit.

You can send us your work here:

Please only submit through submittable! No email submissions will be accepted.

We take poetry, flash fiction and nonfiction, hybrid works, art and anything else you have to offer during our open reading periods. We celebrate and yearn for work from LGBTQIA2S+ and BIPOC.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to our email:

Our response time is almost always under a month. Feel free to inquire about the status of your submission after that time has passed!

We want work that’s fluid and funky, connected and coiling. We love work on how we shape the land and how the land shapes us. We want an intimate distance that pulls you in and doesn‘t let go. We want a beaver dam of a piece that keeps the perfect amount of water in, art we can build with and live in for years to come. Help us form this creative landscape with your lovely work!

Beaver Magazine now publishes three regular issues a year:

The Winter Issue: January 31st, Open for submissions NOW until December 31st

The Spring Issue: May 31st, Open for submissions February 15th to April 30th

The Fall Issue: October 31st, Open for submissions June 15th to September 15th

We are completely open to simultaneous submissions, please just notify us either by withdrawing the submission or sending us a message to withdraw individual pieces from a submission.

If you submit and it just isn’t the right fit for us, feel free to send work again as soon as you’d like. Only one submission per genre is permitted at a time. No previously published work will be considered.

Beaver Magazine retains First North American Serial Rights for all work that we publish. Upon publication, all rights are reverted back to the author. The work may be republished with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in Beaver Magazine.

When submitting your work, please include a title and cover letter with a brief, updated third-person biography. Manuscripts should be in a .doc or .docx format.

Poetry: 3-5 poems of any format, each beginning on a new page. We love work that plays with traditional forms and modes. We want the lyric, the narrative, and everything in between.

Prose: Up to 3 flash pieces of no more than 1,000 words each (though we do prefer brevity). Creative nonfiction can include personal, research, or lyric essays as well as memoirs. Fiction can be of any genre or style. Hybrid work can be whatever you want it to be! Please clearly state in which of the three prose genres you are submitting in your cover letter and include page numbers and a word count on the document.

Art: Up to 10 pieces of visual art of any media or style, submitted either in pdf format or as individual jpegs. Please try to submit work with high resolution so if it is published, we can take in all its glory.

(NEW) Hybrid:

Previous contributors are welcome to send work as early as the next submission period after their work appears on the website. No preference will be given to former contributors.
