filling Station accepts singular or simultaneous submissions  of previously unpublished poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction,  critical non-fiction (about literature and occasionally about visual  art), and visual art. We are always on the hunt for great writing and artwork! Please note that Submittable is now filling Station's only method for receiving submissions.

Before submitting to filling Station, please review both the General Guidlines on our website and the genre-specific submission instructions below. Please note that for all submissions, you  must include a mailing address and short bio with your submission. A submission lacking a mailing address and bio will be considered incomplete. For Art submissions, we also require an Artist's Statement regarding the submitted portfolio of work.

Submit up to 6 pages of poetry in a single document.

If your poetry is spaced in a particular way, please make sure to 
use spaces, never tabs, so we can accurately replicate your layout. If you are submitting poetry as a static file (for example, as a PDF or jpeg), please also submit your text in a word document. 

A submission lacking mailing address and/or bio will be considered incomplete, and will be rejected.
Submit creative nonfiction, reviews, interviews, and essays here. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages.

If your nonfiction is spaced in a particular way, please make sure to 
use spaces, never tabs, so we can accurately replicate your layout.
