Terrain.org  welcomes submissions from new and experienced authors and artists alike.

Submissions for the inaugural Sowell Emerging Writers Prize (a full manuscript in nonfiction published by Texas Tech University Press) close October 31.

ARTerrain submissions are open and are accepted year-round.

General submissions of poetry, nonfiction, and fiction will open again on December 15.

Poetry, nonfiction, and fiction contest submissions are now closed; look for a response in early December.

Our online, place-based journal accepts only the finest poetry, essays, fiction, articles, artwork, videos, and other contributions—material that reaches deep into the earth’s fiery core, or humanity’s incalculable core, and brings forth new insights and wisdom. We are seeking work in English (or translation) from around the world, and particularly Indigenous, Native, Black, Brown, and other historically marginalized and underrepresented voices as we expand contributions relating to social, environmental, and climate justice. All accepted submissions by writers of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, women, and/or other marginalized communities whose contributions explore place particularly in the context of social, environmental, or climate justice are considered for our annual Editor's Prize of $500 per genre.

We do our best to respond to general submissions within 16 weeks and ARTerrain submissions within six weeks. Please do not submit regular submissions more than once every six months unless invited to do so.

If you are a former Terrain.org contributor, please remind us in your cover letter.
