Got something good on baseball that you think should be seen in the pages of EFQ? Here are some guidelines that may be of help:
We are a quarterly journal of writing on baseball. Works of all lengths will be considered, but it is strongly preferred that they contain less than 4500 words. A work must be about baseball to receive consideration. Poetry, fiction, memoir, essay, drama, interview, scholarship, humor, analysis, book reviews, and opinion are all acceptable.
Manuscripts submitted to EFQ must be typewritten. Please include your name, address, phone number, and, if applicable, your e-mail address on the first page of your manuscript (or include this information on an accompanying cover letter). Unless you live outside the United States, we request that submissions not first be sent to us electronically, but rather that a hard copy be mailed to the address listed below. (If a submission is accepted, we will then ask that you transmit the manuscript to us electronically via e-mail.) We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but even a small timesaver like not having to print out the many submissions we receive by e-mail increases the likelihood that we can do a better job of keeping up with the large volume of correspondence that we receive from potential contributors.
EFQ reserves the right to publish (or on occasion, re-publish, with the permission of the author who retains the rights) a particular work in a specific issue of EFQ, as well as in any reprint of that specific issue, in anthology, and/or for publicity purposes. The author retains the copyright to any work published in EFQ.
Literary and artistic contributions are not monetarily compensated at this time. Contributors will receive four complimentary copies of the issue in which their work appears.
Manuscripts accepted for publication will not be returned. Manuscripts that are not to be published will be returned provided a stamped, self-addressed envelope (with sufficient postage attached) is enclosed with the manuscript. We are a small press journal, so please be patient while awaiting a reply. We make every effort to respond as timely as possible, usually three to four months for non-fiction and commentary pieces; four to six months for poetry and fiction.
We prefer that writers not query first regarding a submission, since we have to read a manuscript before we can determine if it might be something we want to publish.
Unsolicited manuscripts are welcome.
All manuscripts and correspondence should be addressed as follows:
Elysian Fields Quarterly
P.O. Box 14385
Saint Paul, MN 55114-0385
