Submission Guidelines


We are looking for creative nonfiction that comes from the heart. All submissions should be sent to echolitjournal [at] gmail [dot] com. You should expect a decision in no less than a week.

You may send up to 5 creative nonfiction pieces in a standard font (Times or Arial preferred, 12pt font). We read blind, so keep your name off the work and the file name. Please submit all of your submissions in a single file, and clearly identify each title in the body of the email. 

Please be sure to proofread your work. If you make a grammatical choice that is not typical please make a note of that in your cover letter.

If your submission email does not include a cover letter in the body we will delete it. Please include a short bio, and any important information that we will needed to know. 


We will be publishing Echo quarterly. You will be able to find the issue on this website and on ISSUU.

By accepting publication, you grant Echo one-time electronic rights. The rights revert back to the author after the piece is published in the quarterly issue, and you are welcome to publish it elsewhere.

Also, you give us the right to publish the work on our website, issue, and in the archives.
