Submission Guidelines



    •  We accept submissions in the categories of poetry, short fiction, hybrid genre, lyric essays, book reviews, visual art, and multimedia creations (such as visual poetry collaborations). We are currently closed to submissions for poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction for issue 10. We are still accepting visual art and book reviews for this issue through August. Glint will open to all submissions for issue 11 in November 2019.
    • All submissions must be e-mailed to glintsubmissions at
    • Make sure the title of your e-mail consists of your full name followed by the title of your submission as well as the genre: poetry, fiction, visual art, nonfiction, hybrid genre. Prose poetry and flash fiction are usually considered with work that is identified as hybrid in nature. We make this distinction in order to direct these submissions to editorial board members who are most experienced with texts that defy traditional genre expectations.
    • If you are submitting multiple items (poems, images, flash fiction), you can list multiple titles, shortening the long ones in the subject line. Example: Willie Wordsworth “Tintern Abbey,” “Lucy Gray,” “Strange Fits,”  “Fish-Women” Poetry.
    • Please do not submit more than six poems or 25 pages of prose at a time. Visual artists may submit up to six images.
    • You may send submissions in more than one genre. However, you should not send multiple submission batches in a single genre before we have had time to respond to the first batch. 
    • Glint accepts attachments in doc, docx, rtf, odt; jpg or png is preferred for visual submissions. However, multimedia creations are also welcomed (mp3s and video files), and we don’t mind simultaneous submissions so long as we’re notified if work is accepted elsewhere.
    • Please direct poetry, hybrid genre, and visual art to Brenda Mann Hammack. Address fiction and non-fiction submissions to Sonya C. Brown.  If you are sending a recent publication for possible review, send to Dr. Brenda Mann Hammack; Department of English; Fayetteville State University; 1200 Murchison Road; Fayetteville NC 28301.
    • Though we do prefer word-based submissions that have not been published before, we will occasionally consider reprinting work, especially poems that are included as part of a submitted series. We are willing to publish visual images that have been published in other venues. Please query the editor if you have any questions regarding these guidelines. 
    • All rights will revert to the creators following publication, though we would like to be acknowledged should the work be reprinted at a later date.
    • Glint is an annual publication. We do not receive funding; therefore, we only publish electronically and we can not afford to offer monetary payment. All staff serve on a voluntary basis.
    • Most of our final decisions are made in late spring/early summer as many members of our editorial board are faculty members, serving at different institutions of higher learning.
    • The journal typically publishes in late November or early December with status updates being posted on Glint‘s Facebook site as we near the release date.
    • Contributors who do not participate in social media are encouraged to query the editor about publication status.
