Dime Show Review: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | July 5, 2016

Dime Show Review is a new online magazine of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and literary audio. Inspired by the intrigue of the old-time traveling circus, Dime Show Review publishes writing that prompts readers to peak through the tent flap of the mind into the wild world of imagination. Both emerging and established writers are invited to pitch a tent on the digital pages of the Dime Show, and acts of all varieties are welcome. Authors in need of inspiration can get started at the Ticket Booth—Dime Show Review’s cashbox of adventure-prompting writing exercises. And, readers looking for a quick fix can make their way to the Typewriter, where they can fill up fast on ten word stories.

Dime Show Review is published frequently online. In the future, they also hope to publish a print magazine, as well as a Kindle e-book and an audio companion. They accept submissions annually from February 1 through November 1. Submitting authors can expect a response within two to twelve weeks, and may inquire about unacknowledged submissions after three months.

Fiction writers may submit one complete short story, 3,000 words or fewer, or one complete piece of flash fiction, 1,000 words or fewer. Fiction writers may also submit ten word stories for publication in Dime Show Review’s Typewriter feature. Stories submitted for the Typewriter feature must be exactly ten words. Poets may submit up to four pages of poetry. Nonfiction writers may submit one essay, 3,000 words or fewer. Although international submissions are welcome, all submissions must be written in English.

Dime Show Review accepts submissions online, but not via email or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors immediately withdraw submissions accepted elsewhere. They do not generally accept previously published work; however, they will consider work published on blogs, in online magazines, as Kindle e-books, or in self-published formats as long as fewer than 100 copies have been distributed. All authors published online in Dime Show Review will also be considered for their upcoming audio production.
