Hunger Mountain (print): 

Our contest submissions are now CLOSED

General submissions are now OPEN

We accept general submissions through Submittable only. We wish we could accept surface mail submissions as well, but our staff are scattered far and wide over the globe, and there just isn’t anyone in the office to read hard copy submissions. If you send us submissions through the mail, we will return them to you unread. There is a $3 maintenance fee for using Submittable, roughly the same cost as envelopes, printer ink, and postage for mailing a prose piece or three poems and an SASE. Submittable is not a free service for us, and we have to charge a fee in order to use it. However, we do happily waive the fee for subscribers. If you have subscribed or purchased a copy of Hunger Mountain in the past year, please submit free of charge.

We recommend that you read back issues of Hunger Mountain before submitting. Browse our online archives, subscribe, or order back issues of the print journal.

Ephemeral Artery (Hunger Mountain’s online companion):

General Submissions open September 15 – May 1 (inquiries sent outside of the submission period may go unanswered).

To Submit a Book Review, Craft Essay, Interview, or Literary Ephemera to Ephemeral Artery (online only), please send a query to indicating which section you are interested in and one of our editors will get back to you with submission guidelines.
