Emerald Coast Review – Gulf Coast Regional Publication Seeks Writing, Art, Photography


Call For Submissions

The West Florida Literary Federation (WFLF)’s Emerald Coast Review (ECR) has published the voices of regional writers in an anthology since 1989. This year marks the 21st volume. The publication will feature quality fiction, nonfiction, poetry, contemporary, emerging, and experimental works along with the best of art, graphic design and photography from area writers and artists living along coastal Florida and Alabama. The Emerald Coast Review invites submissions of nonfiction (including hybrids of memoir and essay, flash nonfiction, creative nonfiction, and journalistic feature writing). In the area of fiction, we are eager to receive short stories, short plays, flash fiction and microfiction. We welcome all forms of poetry (including experimental poems). Artistically, we welcome digital photographs and digital photographs of original works as oil, acrylic, watercolor, collage, mixed media, etchings, silk screen, lithographs, etc. WFLF members and residents from the following counties are encouraged to submit: Escambia, Santa Rosa, Walton, Okaloosa and Bay (Florida); Mobile, Escambia and Baldwin (Alabama). ECR invites a diverse, cross-section of regional writers to share their creative voices and submit their work. No writing experience or poetic background is required. Share your voice, enthusiasm and talents. Accepted writers and artists receive a copy of the book.
