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

We are currently accepting general submissions of poetry, nonfiction, and fiction through April 30. Submissions for our 12th Annual Contest in Poetry, Nonfiction, and Fiction open on February 1 and close on Labor Day (September 6, 2021).

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.
