Please submit original and unpublished stories and poems that are set around (or are about) a river — fictional or otherwise. And insert a 50-word, third-person bio beneath the story/poem. Do include your Twitter handle, if you have one.

Head to Ebb & Flow to find a list of prompts if you’re in need of some inspiration.

Please write ‘Submission’ in the subject area when sending your story or poem to Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please let us know if you get accepted somewhere else. Submission window is open from January 16 to March 16, 2021.
No restrictions on genre. But word-limit is 1000. Maximum of two entries per author. At this point in time, we are unable to pay our writers/poets. But that will change in the future.
Selected stories and poems will be published in the second issue of the online journal Riverbed Review, which will be out in April, 2021. Your submission may be edited for grammar upon acceptance.
All rights revert to the author upon publication. Please credit us if you publish it elsewhere.
