It’s August 1 – our submission window is closed. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Our submissions window for the Autumn 2021 issue is now closed. There were very difficult decisions to make (and still to be made).

If you’ve not received a decision yet, we will let you know no later than August 31–unless, of course, the guidelines weren’t followed; we received over one hundred of those. Although we’d like to provide an answer to each and every submission, we had to draw a line at those that didn’t follow guidelines. We just don’t have the time or the staff.

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 Spring 2022 issue, which will be published in April is from January 1 through January 31, 2021. We look forward to reading your work next time around!
