Submissions Policy
Submissions are free, through Submittable. We will set up our Submittable site using the CLMP discount, if we are granted admission to CLMP. We will be open for submissions on a rolling basis, to coincide with a yearly class in literary publishing offered by WPI. We are especially eager to publish the work of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, writers with disabilities, and low-income writers. Each submission will be read by at least two student editors.
