Submission Guidelines

Send us your submissions

We accept submissions in the
following genres:

  • Poetry
  • Fiction and Flash Fiction
  • Creative Nonfiction
  • Genre X (experimental video, photography, mixed media, mixed genre), and works that otherwise falls between the cracks.

Two Hawks Quarterly is looking for exquisitely crafted work that will astonish, surprise, and delight us. THQ accepts simultaneous submissions but please inform us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. All work received is reviewed by at least three editors, and often read aloud in a group setting. We strive to respond to every submission within three months or less.

Please send no more than one piece of fiction or creative nonfiction of 5,000 words maximum length at a time, or two pieces of flash fiction. We discourage novel excerpts unless they stand alone and work as short stories.

We’re interested in all forms of creative nonfiction: memoir, essays, and hybrid forms, but not straight reportage or editorializing rants.

Poetry: Our tastes in poetry are eclectic but please send no more than five poems at a time.

Include a brief cover note with your submission that includes a mini-bio, list of prior publications, and contact information. We tend to read cover notes after we’ve read your work so as not to be swayed by them.

All correspondence with THQ goes through our online submissions system Submittable.com. Once we accept your work, we will ask you to send a more detailed biography and photo through the system.

Submissions are ongoing.
