Submit to Fence from 12:01 a.m. EST on August 1st, until 11:59 p.m. EST on August 31st. This is a subscriber-only submission period, meaning that you must be an active subscriber to FENCE. You may subscribe here anytime before or during the submission period, at a discounted $15 rate for one year of Fence. After subscribing, you will receive an email with submission portal link information. Because this takes some human intervention, please allow twenty-four to forty-eight hours for this email to arrive. We appreciate your patience!

Please note the special Fiction guidelines for this submission period. 

FICTION SUBMISSIONS: For this issue, we are interested in reading work that explores science fiction, speculative fiction, and fantastical fiction. We want to see your other worlds. For all other fiction, please send during the next submission period. 

Non-subscribers are welcome to submit during the regular submission period, the next of which will occur January 1-31 2016.  

Guidelines: Each piece (poem, story, other-other) MUST be submitted individually. This will help us keep best track of withdrawn pieces. Submit no more than 5 poems at any one time, and up to 25 pages of fiction. If you wish to submit more than one document, you MUST submit each document separately. Submissions containing more than one poem or story will not be read.
