  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Swamp Ape Review is a national online (and soon to be print) literary journal founded and produced by the creative writing MFA students at Florida Atlantic University. The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.

  • Submissions policy
    We encourage pieces that echo the hybrid nature of the Swamp Ape, works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible. In 2018, we will publish our first print issue as well as our second online issue, both of which will include a special section featuring South Florida writers and artists. All work will be considered for both the print and online issues. If your work is meant to function in both formats (i.e. collaboratively in print and online), please indicate this in your application. (We would love to see submissions of this nature.) See individual genres for descriptions, size recommendations, and formatting requirements.
