Call for Submissions: Floodwall Literary Magazine

Aubrey Roemmich, Editor

UND’s student run literary magazine, Floodwall, has officially opened for submissions as of February 1st. Submissions will be open to all students until March 1st. This magazine is open to any person who is currently enrolled as a student at UND. Floodwall has four sections: fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and art & photography.  

Fiction submissions are open to short stories, flash fiction, and micro fiction. Short stories are limited to 6,000 words. Flash and micro fiction can be submitted in a packet of three pieces but cannot exceed 3,000 words. Floodwall publishes all genres and is open to experimental works.  

Poetry submissions are open to every kind of poem imaginable. Authors can submit one poem or a packet of up to five poems. Floodwall loves seeing all kinds of poetry, from traditional forms to more modern submissions.  

Floodwall’s creative nonfiction section is probably their most diverse. Creative nonfiction is an umbrella term for works like narrative essays, memoirs, journalism, and reviews of books and movies. This is also a place where individuals can submit critical works and share new ideas or research that is emerging in their various fields. Much like fiction submissions, creative nonfiction takes longer submissions up to 5,000 words and packets of three shorter submissions not to exceed 3,000 words.  

Their last section is the art and photography section. Floodwall is open to portfolio quality images of all 2-D or 3-D art. They invite artists and photographers to submit packets of up to five images.  

If you are interested in submitting any work, you can visit the Floodwall page at to find all relevant submission information. If you have any questions or concerns, you can email them at [email protected]. What Floodwall wants more than anything is to showcase the work that UND students are doing. Whether you have been published numerous times or never heard of the magazine, Floodwall wants to see your work submitted.
