Submissions are now CLOSED.
Please submit original and unpublished stories and poems that are set around (or are about) a river — fictional or otherwise.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/Instagram 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. Submissions are accepted from October 16 to December 16.
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 next issue of the online journal Riverbed Review. 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.
