Next Reading period: September 2017-March 2018

Grey Borders is interested in works that confront and challenge contemporary social norms; work which encourages the reader into discussion and sheds light on otherwise unknown stories. Current and ongoing themes reflect mental illness, race, sexuality, radicalism and social justice. We are interested in reading works of poetry, fiction (all genres) and non-fiction. There are no length restrictions; however, we are looking for full manuscripts for trade publication as well as smaller works for chapbook publication.

Feel free to contact us with questions before submission.

Although we have a "reading period" we do accept submissions throughout the year. If you are submitting outside of our reading period, please contact us prior to submitting.
