We are now accepting original (unpublished) works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, and art. If you would like to submit something that does not fall into one of these categories, but you feel is right for this publication, pick the closest one and include a note explaining your artistic intent or contact us with more information. These guidelines are loose estimations for you to follow. More important is the integrity of the storytelling, regardless of the artistic format, word length, or genre.

Previously published works will not be considered. If your work is selected by us, rights will revert to author after publication in Lucid Eye Review; subsequent publishers should credit us for first appearance.

You may submit multiple selections, but please submit them in a separate documents.

Please include a short biographical statement with your submission in the cover letter box provided.

We do accept simultaneous submissions. Please notify Lucid Eye Review immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere via email ( or submishmash.
