Please read these guidelines carefully before submitting any work.

Still Point Arts Quarterly
is a truly beautiful publication with a focus on art, nature, and spirit. If your submission is not in some way related to our focus, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT IT.

The Quarterly publishes a wide variety of non-fiction and fiction (up to approximately 5000 words). Poetry is published on occasion. Interested writers are encouraged to submit work for review and possible publication.

Guidelines and Terms

  1. There is no submission deadline. We review work continually.
  2. Please do not email or call us to ask about the review process or results. We will email you when we have made a decision regarding your submission. Generally, you will receive a response from us within three months.
  3. If we decide to publish your work, note that it may be many months before your work actually appears in print. Generally, though, work is published within eighteen months of acceptance. 
  4. If we decide to publish your work, we will send a writing agreement for your review and signature. Typically we ask for exclusive First Rights, meaning the right to be the first to publish your work in digital formats. You may republish your work afterwards at any time. We do occasionally accept reprints.
  5. If we decide to publish your work, we will request a short biography and a publicity photograph (optional).
  6. As a published writer, you may submit an advertisement that we will show for free for one year in the journal and on the homepage of our Shanti Arts website. We will send guidelines for preparing the ad at a later date.
