We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and hybrid work. Our general submission period opens February 15, 2024 and closes on May 1, 2024.

We are open for submissions in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and hybrid forms. Please submit prose of no more than 5,000 words or up to three flash/hybrid pieces all in one document. For poetry, submit up to five poems all in one file.

Hunger Mountain strives to provide a platform for traditionally silenced voices, and we reserve at least 50% of each issue for unsolicited work.

We welcome simultaneous submissions but ask that if your work is accepted elsewhere, you withdraw it through Submittable as soon as possible.

Current students and faculty in the MFA in Writing Program at VCFA cannot submit to the magazine. Alumnx must wait two years after the date of graduation to submit.

Due to copyright laws, we cannot accept pieces that include song lyrics.
