Why should you submit to Columbia Journal?
We're dedicated to publishing and displaying the work of the freshest voices alongside established artists, poets and writers.
Every year, a new staff takes over Columbia Journal, made up entirely of second-year students in the MFA creative writing program: poets, nonfiction and fiction authors need your visionary, experimental work - work you're proud of - for our Contest, Online, and Print publications.
- Issue 55 Print Submissions: Closed currently.
- Writing Contest: Open through December 12th, 2016.
- Journal Website: Open through May 31st, 2017.
You can withdraw a submission within the Submittable platform. If you only want to withdraw one piece (or poem) from your overall submission, please email email@example.com with the details of your request.
For the website: we rarely republish content online that has already been published. If you have rights to republish your work, and a compelling reason to do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your work. As a matter of policy, unsolicited and already published submissions will be rejected if we have not first heard from you and agreed to review your work.
You may also re-publish your work that appears on the site as long as you credit us as publishing it first. Please wait for a response to your first submission before submitting to us again.
