Our Winter 2017 issue is the 25th anniversary of Camas magazine's launch. We're looking for work that broadly interprets Camas' theme of 'the nature of the west.' We're spending some time reflecting on those last 25 years and also the next 25. The best pieces will surprise, stun, and stimulate thought. It's a tall order, but it's a big issue; all submissions will be considered.

We happily accept all submissions through Submittable, which you can access via the link below (you'll need to create an account if you haven't already). All submissions are read blind: please ensure that your name does not appear anywhere on submitted documents. The submission period for our Winter 2017 issue is September 7 through October 20.

Fiction: Up to 5,000 words. One fiction piece per writer per submission period.

Nonfiction: Up to 5,000 words. One nonfiction piece per writer per submission period.

Poetry: Up to five poems per writer per submission period. Please include all five poems in one .doc or .pdf file.

Art and Photography: Up to five images per submitter. Black and white media is preferred, but high-contrast color pieces may also be suitable. The body of the magazine will be printed in grayscale, while front and back cover images will be in color. Please submit images in as high a resolution as possible (at least 300 dpi, preferably a grayscale .jpg or .tif file). Please include a brief description of each piece in your cover letter.
