From the Epoch guidelines:

EPOCH is an open forum for literary fiction, poetry, essays, screenplays, cartoons, graphic art, and graphic fiction. We consider only work that is previously unpublished. We do not accept electronic submissions or simultaneous submissions.

Reading Period

We read work submitted by literary agencies year-round. We read unsolicited work between 15 September and 15 April of each academic year. Work submitted outside our reading period is returned unread.


We consider submissions by mail only. All submissions should include an SASE. Submissions without SASE are recycled without notification to the author. Submissions should be addressed to the appropriate editor: e.g. Fiction Editor, Poetry Editor, Essay Editor. Screenplays, cartoons, graphic art, and graphic fiction should be so labeled on the envelope.
