Saw Palm Call for Submissions

Published September 12, 2023

Saw Palm: Florida Literature & Art is now accepting submissions for Issue 18 of our print journal. If you know of any students and/or colleagues currently engaged in creative work, we’d love for you to pass along our submission call to those who might be interested! 

Saw Palm Call for Submissions

Saw Palm is a journal that seeks to go beyond the news stories and tourist brochures, capturing the unique experience of Florida lives and landscapes. Established as a web journal in 2006 by John Henry Fleming and the graduate students of the Creative Writing Program at the University of South Florida, Saw Palm began publishing a print edition and taking subscriptions in 2008. 

We offer a mix of stories, essays, poems, comics, and visual art that speaks to the diversity of Florida. Our contributors include national and international award-winners, as well as emerging artists and writers. We are especially interested in experimental and voice-driven work. 

      Issue 18 is open for submissions until November 1st, 2023 for publication in Spring 2024. Find us on Submittable at for more guidelines. We’ve also attached our flyer below. 

To stay up to date on submission calls, you can find us on Twitter @sawpalm, Instagram @saw_palm, or email us at Thank you for circulating and sending work!
