Salvation South wants stories told in any medium about the American South: We accept journalism, personal essays, photo essays, short films, short fiction and poetry.

Salvation South accepts stories, in all mediums, that reckon with the history and celebrate the culture of the American South. We invite journalists, essayists, poets, fiction writers, photographers and filmmakers to tell their stories on our platform. Sending simultaneous separate submissions is fine, but please do not submit pieces that have been published elsewhere. 

For poets, we ask that you submit between three and five poems in a single submission: We might accept only one, or we might accept them all.

We do our best to respond to all submissions within three months. Your patience is appreciated. Our crew is small. You will hear back from our editor-in-chief, Chuck Reece, or our poetry editor, Andy Fogle.
