Edge: Open To Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | October 30, 2014

Edge is a literary journal published yearly by Tahoe Writers Works. Edge is a beautifully presented print journal. They try to focus writing that bites, that has some sort of edge. They are open to genre, as long as the writing is high quality and pushes the boundaries in terms of expectations.

Because Edge is published by Tahoe Writers Works and is not an academic publication, its work is more eclectic, and the range reflected in each journal is very interesting. Edge has been around for nine years now, and takes its name from the following Hunter S. Thompson quote “The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”

Edge publishes short stories, essays, and poems. Submit up to 6 poems at a time or 6,000 words worth of prose. They are open to novel excerpts as long as they are self contained.

If your work is accepted by them they cannot offer payment but they can offer you a contributor copy. They accept only a small percentage of the work submitted to them every year. Less than 5%. It takes them up to four months to respond to submissions.

It is easy to submit to them. You just use the submission manager Submittable.
