Cleaver reads submissions year round, on a rolling basis, for our quarterly literary magazine, Life As Activism, and Radio Plays.

We accept literary magazine manuscripts, Life As Activism submissions, and radio play scripts only through our Submittable portable. We are not able to consider work sent to us through postal mail or email. We are happy to read simultaneous submissions, with immediate notification if work is accepted elsewhere. Previously published work is not considered, although we will sometimes consider work previously shared on personal blogs. Translations are welcome with permission of original author, or for works in the common domain.

For all other genres (Craft Essays, Travel Essays, Book Reviews, and letters to June Cleaver), contact the editors directly.
