Thank you for considering submitting your creative works to Jet Fuel Review. We are excited to view any submission that follows our guidelines. These are as follows… We receive many submissions so unfortunately submissions that fail to follow the posted guidelines will not be considered, so as a friendly suggestion, read over them a couple of times to ensure we get the opportunity to review your creative works. Thanks and best of luck!
If you are interested in submitting a book for potential review (fiction, creative nonfiction, or poetry), please send review copies to the following address: Jet Fuel Review Attn: R.E. Steele Dept. of English, Unit 1214 One University Parkway Romeoville, IL 60446
Fiction: We are looking for short fiction pieces of 3000 words or less. These can be short stories, flash fiction, or micro shorts. Submit only one fiction piece per reading period. Please submit file as a .doc or .docx file. For editorial tastes, read here.
Nonfiction: We welcome the many permutations of creative nonfiction from lyrical essays to memoirs to hybridized works. These may also include critical literary essays and personal narratives of 3000 words or less. Please adhere to word limits and submit your file as a .doc or .docx file. You may send only one nonfiction piece per reading period due to length. For editorial tastes, read here.
Poetry: Please send 3 – 5 poems within the current reading period. Please submit your entry as a .doc or .docx file. You may also submit a PDF in addition to the .doc/.docx file to ensure the integrity of your poems’ formatting. For editorial tastes, read here.
Artwork: Please send 3 – 5 pieces of artwork within a reading period. When submitting artwork, we request that you caption the artwork with a title, if available, and the medium in which you worked. Of course, we can only literally publish virtual art, that is, art that is transferable to an online format. If you wish to submit a painting or a sculpture, you are welcome to send a high definition photo of the piece. Please submit your files as a JPG or PNG.
The content for Jet Fuel Review is exclusively online. Jet Fuel Review claims first publishing rights, which revert back to the author upon publication; however, please include first publication acknowledgments to Jet Fuel Review if your work appears later in any subsequent publications including books and anthologies. While we allow simultaneous submissions, please do notify us as soon as possible if your work becomes unavailable as we do not publish previously published work, whether that publication occurred online or in print.
*We prefer not to publish the same authors and artists in consecutive issues, so if we’ve published your work we would be grateful if you would wait at least one issue before resubmitting.
A note regarding response time: As a rule, expect to hear back from us either way within two months from the end of the reading period, but usually sooner.
