Thank you for visiting our submissions portal. Tupelo Quarterly accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, lyric essay, hybrid work and visual art during open reading periods. Please read the guidelines for each category carefully. If no categories appear, that means the reading period is closed. Simultaneous submissions are welcome as long as you notify us immediately at the if the work is placed elsewhere. Submissions may not be changed after entry. We do not accept previously published material.

Tupelo Quarterly is thrilled to announce the launch of a series of zoom-based workshops, which will focus on topics related to writing and professional development.  We are currently accepting proposals for workshops in the following areas: 


Close Reading in All Genres 

Hybrid Texts

Multimedia Texts

Poetry Films, Video Poems, & Cinepoetry

Collaborative Texts

Cross-Genre Projects 

All instructors will be compensated with a percentage of the proceeds from their workshop.  To submit, please include a current C.V. and a 250-word workshop description as a PDF or Word Doc.  

We are looking for reviews of books that change the way we think about language, literary tradition, and inherited forms of writing, books that are deserving of a wider audience and a more varied response from the literary community at large. Submit reviews, between 900 and 1,200 words in length, as .doc, .docx or .rtf files. Include a bio in the space provided for cover letters.
