The Arkansas International is committed to promoting both established and emerging voices. We welcome previously unpublished, unsolicited submissions of fiction, poetry, essays, comics, and works in translation between September 1 and April 1. During September, October, January, and February, there will be no fee to submit (excluding translations & book reviews, during the remaining months a $3.00 submission fee will be charged to defray administrative costs).

We welcome prose submissions of up to 10,000 words, poem packets of up to five poems, and ask that excerpts from longer works be self-contained. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, provided we are notified in the event that a piece is accepted elsewhere. Please do not submit more than a single story, essay, or poem packet until you have heard back from us about your previous submission.

If you are submitting multiple pieces, please put them together in one submission. Since the number we can receive every month is capped, subsequent submissions will have to be returned unread.

Before submitting translations of works that are not in the public domain, translators should identify the rights holder and obtain a statement that the rights to publish an English translation are available.

The Arkansas International cannot consider work from anyone currently or recently affiliated with the University of Arkansas, which includes those who have studied or worked there within the past 4 years.

Payment will be reevaluated based on the budget of each issue. For issue three, contributors will be paid $20 a printed page (capped at $250) and in copies of the journal.
