Submit to GASHER

GASHER accepts submissions bi-annually for our online journal.

To honor our readers and our editors' time and effort, we have decided to set submission caps. Usually, the last week of our submission period will receive hundreds of new submissions with a tight turnaround time that is not sustain-

able for our staff. Please note that we have also limited responses to one per genre.


We accept submissions through our Submittable page please, do not email us your submissions.









Guidelines for all publishing, prizes, and opportunities can be found below:

  • We accept simultaneous submissions. Please, let us know if your submission is accepted elsewhere.

  • Once work is submitted, it can not be revised or edited. Please do not email revised versions of the original works or attach revisions to your submission on Submittable. We will not consider it.
