Please note: Third Coast only accepts online submissions via our submission manager. A link to this submission manager follows the guidelines. All paper submissions will be returned unread, and any submissions sent via e-mail attachment will be deleted.
Third Coast publishes poetry, fiction (including traditional and experimental fiction, shorts, and novel excerpts, but not genre fiction), creative nonfiction (including reportage, essay, and memoir), drama (including both performed and unperformed pieces) and translations. We encourage new as well as established writers. Payment is two contributor’s copies and a one-year subscription. All rights revert to the author upon publication.
