400 and Falling Press

Accepting submissions: All Year

The 400 and Falling Review, a new bi-annual for-print literary journal, is open for submissions of previously unpublished poetry, fiction, visual art, creative non-fiction and criticism. Founded this year by two students, the 400 and Falling Review has a preference for the work of emerging writers and artists. For the sake of clarity, we have defined “emerging”, as not widely read or viewed.

Work that is accepted may appear both online and in print. Not all work featured online will be included in the printed journal Despite our best wishes, we cannot offer compensation for our writers. This is something we intend to work on for the future. In the meantime we can offer contributors a copy of the first issue and a discounted subscription to the journal.

We urge all writers interested in submitting to spend time with the work that is featured on our website. On the homepage you can find selections from the first issue. Please take the time to sign up for newsletter or like us on Facebook. Regardless of acceptance, all writers who submit will be eligible for a discounted subscription to the 400 and Falling Review. We ask that you review our submission guidelines before sending us your work.
