Thank you for your interest in Basalt Magazine. Submissions are now open. 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 https://www.eou.edu/basalt/

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.
