Duck Lake Journal

Published quarterly, Duck Lake Journal is the literary magazine of Duck Lake Books, a not for profit literary publisher loc
ated on the Pacific coast of Washington state. From these humble, rural roots, the Journal has spread branches around the world, publishing poetry and fiction from across the Americas, Europe, India and Asia. We actively seek and welcome poetry and fiction from all corners of this round Earth. Through compassion and art, we can all live in harmony and peace.

Its motto is “the home lake of literary arts” because its vision is to clearly highlight the role literature plays, or can play, in our daily personal and public lives. If political divisions are the scars on humanity, the arts are clearly the wound dressing necessary to heal.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
POETRY

PREFERENCE: We prefer poetry that is more than prose broken into lines. Whether it is narrative or lyrical, we want a clear sense of voice. The poem should demand to be spoken.

Submit up to five (5) poems in a single document.

Submissions should be in a doc, docx or rft format. They should be single spaced with a page break between each poem. Use a plain 12pt. typeface, such as Times New Roman.

Include a cover letter with a brief bio. Where do you live, work, play, learn? Tell us about your education and background, including major publications and/or awards.

Submissions should be previously unpublished in a literary magazine or anthology. Unpublished poems that have appeared in chapbooks or full length volumes are okay.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please inform us immediately if your poems are accepted elsewhere.


FICTION

PREFERENCE: Of course, a clear story with a beginning, middle and end is essential, but the story, like poetry, is literary art that must be constructed with vivid imagery and an engaging narrative voice.

Submit up to three (3) stories in a single document, but no more that a total of 20 pages.

Submissions should be in a doc, docx or rft format. They should be double spaced with a page break between each story. Use a plain 12pt. typeface, such as Times New Roman.

Include a cover letter with a brief bio. Where do you live, work, play, learn? Tell us about your education and background, including major publications and/or awards.

Submissions should be previously unpublished in a literary magazine or anthology. Unpublished stories that have appeared in short story collections or novel excerpts are okay.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please inform us immediately if your stories are accepted elsewhere.
