General Submission Guidelines

Folio Magazine

FOLIO is a nationally recognized literary journal sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences at American University in Washington, DC. Since 1984, we have published original creative work by both new and established authors.

Past issues have included work by Roxane Gay, Michael Reid Busk, Billy Collins, Chloe Caldwell, William Stafford, Bruce Weigl, and Ross Gay, and interviews with Michael Cunningham, Charles Baxter, Amy Bloom, Ann Beattie, Walter Kirn, and Marie Howe, among many others. 

We look for well-crafted poetry and prose that is bold and memorable. We want art that challenges. We encourage you to look at a recent issue of FOLIO to determine the compatibility of your work with our magazine.
