A Sprinkling of Lit Journals That Take Electronic Submissions: G – H

Posted in Uncategorized by Caralyn Davis on February 20, 2012

We’ve reached the letters G and H in our quest to find some intriguing lit journals that accept submissions electronically. For some reason, many big-name literary magazines tied to these letters have not made the jump. For example, the Georgia Review, Granta, Harper’s Magazine, and The Hudson Review still accept only paper snail-mail submissions. But don’t lose heart. Instead, take a look at the following journals that do allow electronic submissions:

Gigantic – Submishmash –  no fee – allows simultaneous submissions – year-round submissions

Glimmer Train – in-house submission manager – variable fees – allows simultaneous submissions – year-round submissions.

Note regarding the fees: While Glimmer Train runs contests throughout the year with reading fees of $15 to $20 per story, this journal also allows fee-free submissions of up to three stories per “standard” reading period in January, April, July, and October. Unlike many other journals, Glimmer Train also pays for stories that they accept during these standard periods. And just to give you a “glimmer” of hope that this journal pays attention to fee-free submissions, one story that I submitted fee-free garnered a “this is a good story” from one of the editors, even though they decided not to publish it.

Green Mountains Review – in-house submission manager – no fee – doesn’t address simultaneous submissions – variable

Greensboro Review – Submishmash – $3 fee (waived for subscribers) – allows simultaneous submissions – variable

Grist – Submishmash –  no fee – allows simultaneous submissions – July – October submissions

Guernica – e-mail submissions –  no fee – allows simultaneous submissions – year-round

Gulf Coast – in-house submission manager – no fee –allows simultaneous submissions – September – March submissions

Harvard Review – Tell It Slant – $3 fee –allows simultaneous submissions – September – May submissions

Hayden’s Ferry Review – Submishmash –  no fee – allows simultaneous submissions – year-round

Hobart– Submishmash –  no fee – doesn’t address simultaneous submissions – variable

Hunger Mountain – Submishmash – $3 fee –allows simultaneous submissions – year-round
