American Letters & Commentary

submission guidelines

American Letters & Commentary is a literary annual particularly interested in innovative and challenging writing.

Past contributors include Charles Bernstein, Jeff Clark, Gillian Conoley, Lydia Davis, Stephen Dixon, Amy England, Elaine Equi, Barbara Guest, Christine Hume, Ann Lauterbach, Claudia Rankine, Donald Revell, Stephanie Strickland, Cole Swensen, Susan Wheeler, C.D. Wright, and John Yau. Writers unfamiliar with these names are encouraged to read a copy of the magazine before submitting material.

For a sample send $8.00 to the address below, requesting a sample back issue.

All submissions must include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) for response only. Submissions will not be returned. A brief cover letter is always welcome, but please do not send resumes, reviews of your work, or lengthy lists of previous publications. Submit to the address below. Please indicate genre on outside of envelope.

Only previously unpublished work is considered. Simultaneous submissions are accepted providing we are notified at once should the work be accepted elsewhere. Our reading period is October 1 March 1.

Send 3 to 5 poems, 10 pages maximum.

Stories of 12 pages or less have the best chance. Most of our stories are shorter than that.

Non-fiction (essays)
We are interested in personal literary essay and in critical essays on writers that are slanted for the general reader (i.e., not academic prose). Please see past issues for examples.

We regret the size of our staff makes these restrictions necessary. We also regret that the publication of just one issue each year means that we must turn down many worthy pieces that come our way.

Payment is in copies. All rights are returned to the author upon publication.

Thank you for your interest in our magazine.
