Because the Flatirons Literary Review is dedicated to locally grown and operated writing, we only welcome submissions from Boulder writers and those who reside in Colorado. We have a special fondness for writers who live within a short walk or bike ride from the Flatirons, but if you live in the Western Slope or are a piece down Interstate 25, we’d happily consider your work. If you are an expatriate or a sometimes visitor and have written something with a strong Colorado connection you might convince us to gerrymander you into the state, metaphorically speaking.

All submissions will be submitted through Submittable. Please carefully read all submission guidelines.

We have a special need for writers to interview other local writers for features, Q & As and to pen book reviews. If you are looking for get-rich-quick schemes, you might want to consider submitting elsewhere.  By submitting to us, you get to help out your fellow writers and build literary karma for the release of your own books.

If you want to be in on organizing details, please join up with our group and I’ll let you know when we schedule our organizational meeting.

Keep writing!
