Prairie Schooner’s intention is to publish the best writing available, both from beginning and established writers. We publish short stories, poems, interviews, imaginative essays of general interest, and reviews of current books of poetry and fiction. Scholarly articles requiring footnote references should be submitted to journals of literary scholarship.

We do not read simultaneous submissions, and submissions must be received between September 1 and May 1. We do not consider work that has been previously published anywhere, including web publications. Please allow 3-4 months for a reply.

We encourage you to read Prairie Schooner before you submit. Sample copies are available for $6.00 in our store.

We look forward to reading your work!


If you have a completed short-story or poetry collection, consider entering our Book Prize Contest, open annually from January 15 to March 15: https://prairieschoonerbookprizeseries.submittable.com/submit
