Impost: A Journal of Creative and Critical Work, a peer-reviewed journal published by the English Association of Pennsylvania State Universities, welcomes submissions of creative writing (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short dramatic pieces, and literary journalism), as well as scholarly essays in all fields of English studies.
Please submit work via email to AD Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the title of the work in the subject line. Attach the submission as one file in .doc or .docx format. In the body of the message, include a brief bio (up to 120 words): your name, address, phone number, email address, institutional affiliation (if you have one), the genre and title(s) of your work, and any other relevant information. In the attached submission, please do not include any identifying information. Scholarly work should follow current MLA guidelines. Creative prose should be double-spaced, and poems should be single-spaced.
Creative work can be simultaneously submitted; however, we ask to be notified immediately when a work must be withdrawn from consideration. Scholarly work should not be simultaneously submitted. Creative prose should be double-spaced, 5000 words or less. If submitting flash fiction or flash creative nonfiction (under 1000 words) or poetry, writers may submit up three (3) pieces in one submission.
Submissions will be acknowledged upon receipt. Contributors will be notified of acceptance status via email at the completion of the review process. Usually, the review process is completed within two months after submissions are received. If you haven’t received notification of the status of your manuscript within two months, you may contact the editor at email@example.com.
Current and previous editions of the journal, which in the spring of 2016 changed its name from EAPSU Online, can be found on our website, eapsu.org.
While Impost is published by EAPSU, submissions are not limited to members. We are most interested in submissions from authors who live or work in Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas, including Maryland, Ohio, West Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, and western New York, but we will consider writers from other regions as well as international submissions. All authors who submit work before 3 April will be guaranteed consideration for the upcoming issue of Impost, and submissions received after this date will be considered for the following year. By submitting your work, you agree that Impost acquires first serial rights. In addition, Impost may reserve non-exclusive rights to reprint a piece.
