Work submitted is considered for both the upcoming issue and TDR Daily.
TDR accepts unsolicited submissions year-round.
What is TDR Looking For?
We are looking for short stories, flash fiction, prose poetry, poetry, creative nonfiction, articles, essays, interviews, and reviews.
Have an idea for something which falls outside the box? Pitch it here first.
All voices are welcome. However, TDR will not tolerate writing which fosters or promotes discrimination and hatred.
If you have something wonderful, drastically beyond the word limit guidelines, pitch it here first. We rarely publish anything over 8,000 words.
Fiction – 1,000 – 5,000 – submit only one at a time.
Nonfiction – 1,000 – 5,000 – submit only one at a time.
Articles/Interviews/Reviews – play it by ear – submit only one at a time.
Flash Fiction – 50 – 1,000 – submit up to three at a time.
Prose Poetry – 50 – 1,000 – submit up to three at a time.
Poetry – no line limit – submit up to three at a time.
We have updated our response time to 8 weeks. If you haven’t heard from us within that time, please feel free to send an inquiry to email@example.com.
All voices are welcome but, at the moment, TDR is only able to read submissions in English.
We consider simultaneous submissions but ask that you notify us as soon as possible if your work is accepted elsewhere.
We do not consider previously published work.
Not yet. But, as we grow, so will author payment.
Upon acceptance, TDR acquires first worldwide serial rights and archival rights. All rights revert back to the author upon publication.

We accept submissions online through Submittable.
