SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submissions are currently closed. 

Product is a student-run, annual online journal produced through the English Department's Center for Writers graduate program at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Any current students, undergraduate or graduate, are eligible to submit their work. Our interests are wide and varied. We love everything from traditional realism to experimental to magical realism. We are also interested in seeing ways in which writers use form, narrative, and language in both traditional and nontraditional ways. Flash fiction, short shorts, traditional length short stories, and everything in between are welcome.

Documents, as well as e-mail subject lines, should contain [Genre]-[Last Name] and be in Word or PDF format (.JPEG files for visual art) and all work should be written in a legible 12 pt. font, such as Times New Roman or Garamond.
