Submission Guidelines
Submissions are open to all writers, from all places. We seek prose (<3,000 words), flash fiction,  poetry, visual art, and photography. The submission deadline for Issue No. 1 has closed. 
The submission deadline for Issue No. 2 is April 1st, 2018. 

Issue No. 2  suggested THEME:  
Summer Haunts  / Summer Hauntings.

In addition to publishing emerging and established writers and artists the world over, each issue will also feature work from writers or artists with a history in New Mexico.  For example, issue No. 1 will feature New Mexico poets. The theme for Issue No. 2 will be announced after we debut Issue No. 1 on November 1. 


We like writing that is honest, gritty, vulnerable, wise. We like plot, but not too much plot. We want characters like us -- complicated, flawed, human. Make us uncomfortable. Wake us up. Provoke awe. 
We accept flash fiction, poetry, short stories and literary nonfiction submissions year-round. 

For poetry: Submit up to 3 pieces at a time, no more than 10 pages total

For flash fiction: Submit up to 3 pieces at a time (totaling no more than 1,000 words)

For longer prose: 3,000 words is our max

For visual art/photography: Submit work in jpg form (and please submit no more than one submission every three months).

All work must be unpublished. 

We try to respond within two months, but sometimes it will take longer. 

Perhaps this will change in the future, but, for now, we are unable to offer payment.  

Simultaneous submissions are okay, but let us know if  this is the case.

To withdraw a submission, email us at or log on to the submission page and click the withdraw button. 

We look forward to  reading your best work.

After we publish poetry,  prose, or artwork  in Manzano Mountain Review or Little Wolf, all rights revert back to the authors. If you wish to reprint, repost, or redistribute their work in any form, contact the writer and secure permission.
