Our inaugural issue is coming together!

Our submissions window is closed, but our Spring issue is shaping up nicely! We have 15 pieces so far, and our writers hale from as far away as Nigeria and the UK.

Stay tuned! We still have a lot of reading to do. When our TOC is firmed up—some time, probably, in the middle of February—we will release it here, so that you’ll know what you have to look forward to.

Have a great week!

Our submissions window has closed

Our submissions window for the Spring 2020 issue is now closed. Thank you to all who shared your work with us!

If you’ve not received a decision yet, we will let you know no later than February 28. Between now and then, if you haven’t gotten an answer and you need to withdraw your work due to acceptance elsewhere, please drop us a line at 34orchardjournal@gmail.com.

Certainly, if you have any questions or concerns, you can also email us at the same address. We’ll get back to your promptly.

The reading period for the Fall 2020 issue, which will be published in November, is from July 1 through July 31, 2020.

Want to know more about us? We’ve been featured on SIX QUESTIONS FOR …

Six Questions 1

Jim Harrington’s Six Questions For… blog, which focuses on interviews with literary magazine editors, has published an interview about 34 Orchard here: https://sixquestionsfor.blogspot.com/2019/12/six-questions-for-34-orchard.html

If you’re a writer, this is a wonderful blog—especially if you’re wondering what goes on in editors’ heads before you submit—so don’t just read our interview, read them all!

We’re on Duotrope!

Duotrope Button

We’re thrilled to announce that fewer than 24 hours after our site went live, Duotrope accepted our listing application! You can find our listing here.

We support and encourage the use of Duotrope to search for markets and track submissions. Our editor, Kristi Petersen Schoonover, has been using it as a resource since shortly after it was founded in 2005. You can check it out and create an account here.

 

 

We’re up and running!

Just today we made it “Facebook Official” that 34 Orchard is coming in 2020!

There is still so much to do–prepare contract templates, set up email accounts correctly, mail out printed announcements to our friends, choose possible art for forthcoming issues, make a few more business decisions–but we’re ready for all of it.

If you’re a writer, please visit our guidelines. Our first submission period will open January 1, 2020.

If you’re also a reader (or only a reader!), consider signing up via email at the bottom of this page so that you’ll get our announcements delivered right to your inbox (we promise, it won’t be many). Our first issue is currently slated for April 2020.
