Tidal Basin Review invites submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and visual art from every corner of the United States. We want to know where you’re from. We want you to boast, praise, meditate upon, and complain about the culture (i.e., the place, the music, the religion, the food, the clothing, etc.) that informs both who you are and your creative work.

Tidal Basin Review will accept submissions for this call from January 22 – February 29, 2012. Any submissions received after this deadline will not be considered and will be discarded. The standard response time is 2 (two) months.

Tidal Basin Review considers work, in English, which has not been previously published. Tidal Basin Press, Inc. acquires North American Serial Rights, First Electronic Rights, and Electronic Archival Rights. Publication rights revert back to the author upon publication of work in an issue of Tidal Basin Review.
We accept simultaneous submissions, however, please notify us immediately upon acceptance of your work elsewhere via the Submission Manager.
For poetry submissions, submit 1-3 poems totaling no more than 5 pages in one single file in doc., rtf, or .pdf format.
For prose submissions, submit one (1) short story or one (1) stand alone novel chapter or creative non-fiction piece of no more than 2,500 words in one single file in doc., rtf, or .docx format.

For visual art, please submit an original, unpublished art sample of no more than 5 (five) images (any single image may not exceed 4 MB) in .jpeg format only. Please be prepared to provide a digital version (300 dpi) via email in the case your artwork is selected.

You may include biographical information in the “Comments” section.

(Slated for Summer 2012 publication)
