Riprap Literary Journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Riprap Literary Journal accepts submissions from September 6th – December 9th. 

All submissions are blind-read by our editing staff and editorial panels. Your manuscript may not include any identifying information. Any pieces submitted containing personal information that reveals the identity of the author will not be considered for publication.

You may submit to more than one genre except for short fiction/nonfiction; only one submission will be accepted for consideration for those genres.

Riprap does not accept previously published material (including personal blogs & websites). However, simultaneous submissions to other journals are allowed as long as Riprap is notified immediately upon acceptance elsewhere.

If one piece out of a single submission containing a collection of poems (or images, flash fiction, etc) needs to be withdrawn, but others in the collection are still available, please email us as soon as possible with the title of the piece and we will note it on your submission.

Declination and acceptance notices are sent in early Spring. Contributor copies will be sent as remuneration to those artists/writers residing in the U.S. Unfortunately, the cost to ship internationally is prohibitively expensive.

**Do not include identifying information on your manuscript or in the "Title" section of the submission form**

Editorial notes may be provided as necessary for publication. These guidelines subject to change without notice.
