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. 

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

River Teeth does not have a page length or word count limit. Please wait to submit another essay for consideration until a decision has been made on your first submission. Editors try to respond within six months but the review process sometimes takes longer. Thank you for sharing your work with us!

After completing this registration form, you will be redirected to PayPal in order to submit your $100 registration fee. Note: Scholarship applications do not have to submit a registration fee. Thank you for your registration to the River Teeth Nonfiction Conference!
