River Teeth accepts creative nonfiction submissions to the journal September 1 through December 1 and January 1 through May 1. 

Submissions to the Beautiful Things column are considered year-round. (Although we may close from time to time when we fall behind on our reading.)

The Book Prize deadline is October 31; submissions are generally accepted for six months prior to the deadline.

Glimpses, glimmers, meditations, moments, reflections, refractions, interrupted shadows, river shimmers, darkened mirrors, keyholes, kaleidoscopes, earring hoops, slabs of cracked granite, cracks where the light gets in. Beautiful things.


Flash nonfiction submissions to the River Teeth weekly series, Beautiful Things, should be 250 words or less. Please submit one beautiful thing at a time.
