A first for us! Yes, we publish writers from everywhere, but for one special issue we want to feature the work of Maryland writers only. We have always had a locally based staff, and our writing community is important to us. And Maryland is home to many incredible writers!

We are opening this submission door for one month only, June 15-July 15, and we hope to publish the work accepted for this special issue in September 2019. 

If you wish to be considered for this special issue, please submit your poems (1-3 poems single-spaced, preferably each poem no longer than one page), fiction (one story), and creative nonfiction (one creative nonfiction piece) here. Short stories and creative nonfiction should be 3,000 words or less, double-spaced; we do enjoy flash-length work.

Essays on writing and interviews--content you believe would be of interest to fellow writers--will also be considered here. If you want to query us about the appropriateness of a piece before submitting, email editor@baltimorereview.org. 

We look forward to reading your work.
