General Submissions
Alexandria Quarterly is looking for previously unpublished poetry, short fiction (up to 1000 words), creative nonfiction, essays and excerpts from longer works in any style and any theme. We do recommend that you check out past issues to see what we publish, though we're pretty open to all forms of creative expression.
Please include a short bio (up to three sentences) and your current contact information in the cover letter section of the submission form.
For poetry, please submit 2-5 poems per submission. Submit via our Submittable page, here.

Please submit up to five images with 300 dpi or one video or audio file per submission. Include a short bio in the cover letter section of the submission form. Submit via Submittable here.

Emerging Artists & Writers
Alexandria Quarterly's Emerging Artists & Writers series seeks to promote the work of creative people ages 13 to 17 years old. Please follow the general submission guidelines, but submit you work, in any genre or medium, here.
