Border Crossings Literary Journal Submissions

Border Crossings Magazine accept submissions of original, unpublished work via Submittable during our official reading period only.

Border crossings magazine


We’re especially interested in writing that crosses boundaries in genre or geography, and voices that aren’t often heard in mainstream publications. The best way to see what we mean by this is read our latest issue. All of our submissions go through a rigorous editorial board process.

 We consider ourselves a “teaching journal,” in that one of our main goals is to give LSSU English and creative writing students editing and publishing opportunities prior to graduation. Every year, student interns read alongside faculty editors as part of the full editorial board.

Border Crossings Journal Submissions Guidelines

We accept submissions of original, unpublished work via Submittable during our official reading period only. 

Submissions emailed, mailed, or sent outside of our reading period will not be read

. Please follow the guidelines for each genre. 

Please note that we do not accept multiple submissions in a single genre during our reading periods, unless you are specifically invited to resubmit by the editors. 

For writers who have been previously published in Border Crossing, please wait one year after publication before submitting again. 

Also please note that the editors may make minor copyedits to your work upon acceptance.

With your submission, please include an email address you regularly check and a brief biography of about fifty words.

 We do accept simultaneous submissions; however, please return to the submission manager and, using the “Messages” tab, add a message to your submission in Submittable indicating which part of your submission was accepted elsewhere.

Response time is roughly 6-9 months. At this time, we are not able to offer payment to all authors. 

However, with volume 5, our first online issue, we began featuring selected authors. Every year, after all of the work in each genre has been accepted, one author is chosen for a paid feature. 

Featured authors receive prominent placement in the online journal, a published interview with the editors, and a $100 honorarium. 

Flash Fiction


Up to 1000 words per flash fiction submission.

 We also accept microfiction up to 400 words apiece.

 Submit no more than two flashes or micros, up to 1000 words total, in one single document; do not submit stories separately. Include a word count for each story.

We do accept simultaneous submissions; however, please promptly return to the submission manager and, using the “Messages” tab, send a message via Submittable indicating which piece has been accepted elsewhere. 

Please note that you may only submit once per reading period; multiple submissions will not be considered. 

Poetry


Submit 3-5 poems in one document up to 10 pages; do not submit poems separately. 

Prose poems are also welcome.
