Submissions for the 2017 issue of Echoes & Visions are now open!  Send us your best!


Submit up to five poems, with each selection serving as a separate submission. Submissions should be in .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .rtf.


Prose pieces should be no more than 3,000 words, with each selection serving as a separate submission. Excerpts from longer works are acceptable as long as they are able to stand on their own. Submissions should be in .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .rtf.


Submit up to three pieces of art, with each selection serving as a separate submission. Artwork should be scanned onto a computer and submitted as a .jpeg file.

Again, please submit pieces individually. (That means if you submit a total of three poems, we should see three separate submissions.)


1) We do not consider previously published work. (That means if your piece appears anywhere in print or online, we consider it previously published.)

2) Submissions must have original titles; no “untitled” pieces, please.

3) All accepted work is subject to revision. Editorial correspondence regarding revision will be sent during May, so it is extremely important to check your email regularly during that time. 

4) Accepted writers and artists must consent to First North American Serial Rights.

Cover Letters and Contact Information:

In the Cover Letter box, please include your name, phone number, mailing address, and a personal email account that you actually check so we can correspond with you should we have any editorial suggestions. In addition, please include a one-sentence author bio written in third person.

Here are two examples:

Betsy Ross has written poetry since she was twelve and is a Nursing major who will graduate in 2015.

Joe Cool is a professional welder who lives in Fruitland, MD, and specializes in nature photography. 

There is no need to describe your work--it should speak for itself.

We appreciate your creativity. You will receive a final decision by early June 2017.
