Colonnades welcomes all submissions of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, as well as visual and audio-visual art. Submissions are accepted all year round; however, there are deadlines each year for the current issue. Any submissions after those deadlines will be considered for the next issue. Accepted submissions are automatically entered in the magazine contest.


Pieces for each issue are chosen through a blind reading and ranking process by staff members. This process does take into account the available space within the issue.



The deadline for literary submissions is January 10, 2016, and the dealine for all art submissions is January 24, 2016.
