About Submitting Work

Getting Something Read is a small publishing site dedicated to short works. We publish short poems and short prose (fiction, essays or other nonfiction).

We accept original unpublished works. We will accept previously published work, if the author is the copyright holder and the previous publisher is cited. Before submitting your work, please review this page and our Copyright Information page.

Less is more.
Submissions are limited to one poem of 12 lines or less, or one prose work of 700 words or less.

We only except work submitted via our own submission form. It can be accessed here.
