There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions for TIMBER's Winter 2019 issue are open 12:00 PM MST September 15th, 2018 through 11:59 PM MST November 30th.

The Winter TIMBER issue is general-themed, while our Spring issue focuses on a more specific concept, movement, or articulation of emotion. 

Of course—and let's not kid ourselves—we are interested in stellar work above all else. We want to see work that makes us lose our (highly-skilled) capacity for coming up with perfect adjectives. Strong narratives, cutting-edge prose, and poetry that makes the most of form and genre are some of the things we love. TIMBER is a loud title; we are a journal that desires to be heard. Send us work that makes us want to scream at the top of our lungs, lest we be caught in danger otherwise. 

We accept submissions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual poetry/word art. We are also interested in hybrid work that pushes against the limits of genre. Please, only one submission per issue. 

TIMBER is a journal of literary art based out of the University of Colorado-Boulder MFA program.
