CRWROPPS post: Call for Submissions: The Rappahannock Review

From: Rappahannock Review <rappahannockreview@gmail.com>

Dear writers,
The Rappahannock Review, an online literary journal published through the University of Mary Washington, is now accepting submissions in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction from established and emerging writers.

We hope that you will share this call for submissions and we would love to consider work from your department. We're currently reading for our next release, Issue 8.1, which will be published in December of this year. In addition to written work, we've opened submissions in the category of audio, and we would love to consider work that experiments with form and that which pushes past the edge of the genres.

You can find us at rappahannockreview.com, and we invite you to explore our current and past issues. Our complete guidelines are here: https://rappahannockreview.submittable.com/submit, and submissions will remain open until October 15.

We look forward to reading your work!

Sincerely,
