basalt magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for your interest in Basalt Magazine. Submissions are now closed. During our open reading periods, please send your best poetry, short fiction, or creative non-fiction for our next issue. Art, interviews, and book reviews are solicited by the editors. To get a sense of what we like, check out our back issues, or our website at

Note: After lengthy consideration, we have decided it is now necessary to charge a modest submission fee of $3.00 per submission for poetry, fiction, and non-fiction to cover the costs of production.   All fees go toward maintaining the magazine, and we are grateful for your support for the arts in this way.
