Submitting to upstreet

We invite you to submit your poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction for the tenth issue of upstreet.
  • Please read these guidelines carefully. If they are not followed, your submission will not be considered.
  • We take submissions only through the upstreet Submission Manager, an online system that will be found here.
  • The submission period for upstreet number ten is from September 1, 2013, to March 1, 2014. The Submission Manager will take work only within that time period.
  • The Submission Manager provides a form to enter the author’s name, address, phone number, and email. A brief bio and other information may be entered in the comments field.
  • Please do not submit previously published works, or more than three poems, two fiction, and two nonfiction pieces per issue.
  • Fiction and nonfiction pieces must be 5,000 words or less.
  • Each poem should be single spaced, and contained in a separate file. Prose poems should be submitted as fiction or creative nonfiction, not poetry. Poems about poetry are unlikely to be published.
  • Please tell us if your submission is being considered elsewhere, and tell us immediately if it is accepted by another publication.
  • Notification will be made via email by May 2014.
The tenth issue of upstreet will appear in early July of 2014. Payment, upon publication,
will be between $50 and $150 for poems, and between $50 and $250 for short stories or essays.
Each author will also receive one complimentary copy, and may purchase more copies at a reduced rate.
