There are presently no open calls for submissions.
During our most recent reading period, descant received an unprecedented number of poetry and fiction submissions. While we are grateful for this, and have been floored by the level of quality in these submissions, we are still working through the backlog. In order to do so in a manner that is timely and thorough, we are not opening our submission window at this time. Thank you for your understanding and—if you are waiting for an editorial decision—your patience.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy what we feel is an extraordinary 2019 volume, due out this fall. We also hope to see you at AWP Conference in San Antonio next spring. Please check back with our website and Facebook page for updates.
