  • Reading Periods: August 1October 31; March 1June 31
    • Submissions received during closed periods will be read on either August or March 1st, in order of receipt.


Submissions can take up to two months to be placed on Peaks Journal, depending on the volume of submissions received…and my motivation. Usually, submissions are accepted and published within a month, so no worries.

You retain copyright. If you ever want your work taken down, just send your request to

If ever I’d like to compile an anthology, I’ll ask, and you’ll receive credit, and payment.
