Submissions

The Saltbush Review publishes literary fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.

*** Submissions are currently OPEN ***

For our third issue we are seeking submissions of short fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction (including personal essays and life writing) of up to 3,000 words on the theme of ‘Intersections.’ Shorter works such as flash fiction are also welcome, as are works that challenge genre boundaries.

Submissions are limited to one piece of fiction or non-fiction, or three poems or three flash fiction pieces per writer. Creative interpretations of the theme are welcome. For a sense of what we publish, have a look at our previous issues here: https://saltbushreview.com/

Submissions are open to all, but we particularly welcome work from South Australian and regional writers, emerging writers, First Nations and POC writers, the LGBTQI+ community, and writers with a disability.

Please send submissions in a Word document using Times New Roman size 12 font and 1.5 line spacing to saltbushreview@gmail.com by the 20th of January 2023. Please also send a 50 word biographical statement. If you have a connection to South Australia, please specify this in your bio. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

The Saltbush Review is proud to announce that we have received funding from Arts SA and that we are able to pay authors for publication of their work in our next issue. We pay AUD$150 per piece of fiction and non-fiction and AUD$100 per poem or piece of flash fiction. We look forward to reading your writing!
