Our Reading Periods Have Changed

Harpur Palate is working towards a more sustainable model for submissions starting in 2024. 

Going forward, for general submissions we will on January 1st with a cap of 200 in each category. General submissions will be open until March 15--or until the cap of 200 is reached. Once we get through the first 200 submissions in each category, we will re-open only if more pieces are needed for our spring/summer 2024 issue. Please keep an eye on our social media if you miss the first cap but would still like to submit! 

For our three contests, we will be opening from January 1 to April 1, 2024.

In 2024, our Fall Reading Period will run from September 15 to October 15, 2024, for consideration in our Fall/Winter 2025 issue. 

This is NOT a submission category. If you'd like to submit your work, please chose the appropriate category below during our reading period.

This category is for back issues only
. Our current issue is available through our subscription category.

Back issues are $8 per copy. The extra $1 included here is for Submittable fees. Please specify in the cover letter box which issue you'd like, where you'd like it sent, and to whom it should be addressed.
*Please note that issues 11.2 and 13.1 are no longer available*

Thank you for your interest in Harpur Palate! As always, thank you for your support and we hope to read work from you soon.
