Submissions Calendar

This calendar shows the opening dates of reading periods for journals and prizes. Unless otherwise noted, each journal listed accepts simultaneous and electronic submissions. A list of journals with year-round reading periods can be found below the calendar.

Note: if there are more than 20 reading periods opening on one day, then you will have to click “Agenda” at the top right of the calendar in order to view them all. If you are viewing the calendar on a phone, then you will have to switch to landscape mode.

This is an ongoing project, and will be updated regularly. If you would like me to add a journal or a prize to the calendar, or if you find any dates that are incorrect, please contact me here.
