Red Weather, the annual literary journal edited and designed by students at Minnesota State University Moorhead, wants your most polished poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, one-act plays, graphic narratives, and visual art (photographs, illustrations, graphics, drawings, paintings, or other media) for inclusion in our 2018 issue.

Please read the following guidelines carefully before submitting your work:

Red Weather accepts multiple submissions, but please submit each piece as a separate submission. Submit up to 5 poems, 3 prose pieces, or 3 visuals.
Poems and prose must be submitted in the .DOC, .DOCX, or .RTF file formats. Visuals must be submitted in the .JPG or .TIFF file formats (minimum 300 dpi, 20 MB maximum).

Your name should not appear anywhere inside the submitted file, including in the file name. Provide your name, contact information, title of work submitted, and your association with MSUM (e.g. sophomore, class of ’82, faculty member; if applicable) in the Cover Letter field of the submissions page.

While there are no hard limits on words, space is at a premium. Preference will be given to pieces under 3,000 words in length. 

Our reading period for the 2017 edition of Red Weather will open on November 16, 2017. It will close at midnight on February 15, 2018.

All submissions will be considered for publication in the next print edition of Red Weather and for possible inclusion on the Red Weather website.

Submissions will be screened and selected blindly by students at Minnesota State University Moorhead.

No previously published work will be considered.

If your work is accepted for publication, you grant Red Weather as publisher first worldwide print and electronic rights, after which all rights revert to the author.
