Rumble Fish Quarterly is currently accepting submissions!

We are currently reading for the Fall 2017 issue. For this one, the theme is going to be Folklore. Submissions that do not pertain to the theme are welcome as well, and will still be considered.

We read submissions year round. To submit your poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, or artwork to Rumble Fish Quarterly, please adhere to the following guidelines.

All submissions should be sent to  Include a brief cover letter with your name, email address, telephone number, and the title of your piece.  Please note that Rumble Fish Quarterly is unable to accept previously published work.

Simultaneous submissions are great! Just let us know if your piece is accepted elsewhere.

Response time is approximately 90 days. If you haven’t heard from us by then, feel free to query via email.
