About The Publication:

“Begun by Donald Barthelme and Phillip Lopate, Gulf Coast is the nationally- distributed journal housed within the University of Houston’s English Department, home to one of the nation’s top ranked creative writing programs. The journal spent its nascent years (1982-1985) as Domestic Crude, a name that nodded to the major industry of the Houston area. It was a 64-page (magazine-formatted) student-run publication, with editorial advising coming from Mr. Lopate, who also contributed work to the first issues. In 1986, the name Gulf Coast premiered. It stuck. After some experimenting, the journal found its dimensions and, eventually, its audience. The journal has since moved beyond the student body of the University of Houston and into the larger world. Our readership of the print journal currently exceeds 3,000, with more and more coming to our ever-expanding website. The print journal comes out each April and October. Gulf Coast is still student-run. We seek to promote and publish quality literature in our local and national communities while simultaneously teaching excellence in literary publishing to graduate and undergraduate students. While we are committed to providing a balanced combination of literary approaches and voices, all of the editorial positions are two-year terms, thus ensuring a regular turnover in the specific personality and style of the journal.

In addition, Gulf Coast differs from many other literary journals in its commitment to exploring visual art and critical art writing. The journal has always featured portfolios by two artists, along with short introductions from critics familiar with their work, and starting in October 2013, Gulf Coast will commit sixteen pages to full-color visual art features and twenty-four pages to critical art writing in each issue. This expansion was made possible by Gulf Coast’s merger with Texas art journal Art Lies, a publication with a respected history of putting artists, curators, scholars, and critics in dialogue with their colleagues around the world. The journal has enhanced its community presence thanks to the Gulf Coast Reading Series, a monthly gathering at Rudyard’s Pub in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston, as well as with its annual Spring Issue Release Party. Gulf Coast’s Houston Indie Book Festival and the Menil Community Arts Festival, held together on the grounds of the Menil Collection, attract more than 75 local and national exhibitors and over 2,500 visitors each April. These three events continue to bring esteemed writers, editors, publishers and, of course, readers to the Houston area.

Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, generously funded by grants from the Brown Foundation, Inc.; the The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts; Inprint, Inc.; Houston Endowment, Inc.; the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance; the Texas Commission on the Arts; the University of Houston English Department; and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as through the support of individual contributions.” 50% freelance.

Email address: fiddlehd-at-unb.ca

About The Publication:

“The Fiddlehead, Atlantic Canada’s international literary journal, is entertainment for the thoughtful with its mix of poetry and stories by established and new writers.” Welcomes new writers. 100% freelance. Circ. 1200. Quarterly. Pays on publication. Publishes ms within two issues of acceptance. Buys “first serial publication rights – all other rights remain with the author, but we ask if the work is reprinted elsewhere that the first publication in The Fiddlehead be acknowledged.” Responds in 1-6 months. Various Canadian booksellers and newsstands carry The Fiddlehead (see our retailer’s page for exact locations). A copy of the most current issue can be obtained via the NewPages Magazine webstore: http://www.newpageswebstore.com and back issues (if not sold out) along with current issue can be purchased directly from our office. They usually range in price from $10 – $15 plus shipping. Email us for details. The Fiddlehead’s subscription rates for one year (4 issues) are $30 for Canada and $36 for the USA and all other countries; two-year (8 issues) subscriptions are available for $55 in Canada and $67 for the USA and all other countries. You can either subscribe via our online payment service or download an order form, print it out, fill it out, and send it to us with your payment.

Current Needs:

“The Fiddlehead is open to good writing in English from all over the world, looking always for freshness and surprise. Our editors are always happy to see new unsolicited works in fiction and poetry. Work is read all year round and we are have no themed issues coming up at this time. Apart from our annual contest we have no deadlines for submissions.” Pays $40 CAD per full-published page, or $20 per half page. Minimum payment for story or poem is $40. The Fiddlehead considers only unpublished work. No faxed, emailed submissions accepted. Please do not send CDs, DVDs, USB drives, etc. Please do not submit previously published or accepted for published material, including work published in anthologies, chapbooks, or online journals. Include a cover letter with contact information (including your email address, if you have one), the title(s) and genre of the work(s) you are submitting and one to three lines of biographical information about your writing career. All submissions should be typed/word-processed, spell-checked, and paginated. Please use white paper, print on one side only, and put your name on every page of your submission. We do not encourage simultaneous submissions to The Fiddlehead, but we will consider them. You must mention in your cover letter that the submission is simultaneous and, even more importantly you must contact us immediately if your submitted work is accepted elsewhere for publication. A short fiction submission should be double spaced and not over 6,000 words. Unless a submission is very, very short (under 1000 words), please send only one short fiction submission at a time. A poetry submission may be single-spaced. Please submit no more than 10 poems per submission. No more than one poem on a page. If a poem runs more than one page, please put the poem’s title in the headers of the additional page(s) and make sure the pages are numbered. To receive a handwritten response, you must include a SASE, that is, a self-addressed envelope, with the correct amount of postage on it. If you wish to receive your whole manuscript back, please say so in your cover letter and include a large enough self-addressed envelope with the correct amount of postage. If the envelope is too small or there is not enough postage, your manuscript will not be returned. To those submitting from outside Canada: We cannot send back a response using stamps from the U.S.A. or elsewhere; so your SASE should have either the correct amount of Canadian postage on it or you should enclose or cash/cheque/money order (CAD or USD only, please).”

Pays $40 CAD per full-published page, or $20 per half page. Minimum payment for story or poem is $40.


The Fiddlehead does not consider unsolicited artwork unless the artist is from the province of New Brunswick.


“Probably the two most common mistakes are 1) writers not taking the time to make sure that submission looks professional (that is, making sure that the submission is printed out on good paper, uses a clean, readable font, has been proofread, etc.) and 2) writers sending us work isn’t suitable for The Fiddlehead (e.g., sending us a story for children complete with pictures). Before you submit to The Fiddlehead, please, at the very least, check out the website and look at the information on the current and past issues. On the current issue page we always published a poem or two and an excerpt or two from the stories in that issue. Our previous issues page has the tables of contents of recent back issues so you can easily find out what authors have been published recently in The Fiddlehead. Much better is to read an issue or two to get a sense of whether The Fiddlehead would be a suitable venue for your work. Be professional — make sure that your cover letter contains all needed contact information and that your submission confirms to The Fiddlehead’s submission guidelines. Take the time to proofread everything before sending it out. If you have any questions then contact us via email or by phone with your questions.”
