Welcome to NELLE!  WE ARE OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS!

We publish writing by women (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, hybrid forms) and we can't wait to read your work! 

We remain open until the issue is full, generally through about July 1st.

All submissions will be automatically considered for our annual Three Sisters Awards. Three prizes of $500.00 will be awarded.

See genre guidelines for more specific information. Kindly submit only once in one genre within a given reading period. All submissions should include a cover letter with a brief biographical statement.

There is a $3 processing fee, which covers costs associated with our online submissions system. This fee is waived for current subscribers.

Single copies or subscriptions may be purchased from our online store: https://secure.touchnet.com/C21564_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=66&CATID=111

Thanks for your interĀ­est in NELLE! We can't wait to read your work.
