NOTE 1: Literary journals come and go. We try to keep track of those in the region, but if you know of one that is not listed among the NW lit scene links in the sidebar, at right, please leave a comment!

NOTE 2: This list focuses on literary journal submissions and does not include contests, prizes or chapbook awards (for example, Crab Creek Review, Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Competition, Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest).

NOTE 3: Before submitting your work, always read a copy of the publication and read and follow the submission guidelines carefully.
