FLARE: The Flagler Review seeks to publish both up-and-coming and established writers. Accepting of both the traditional and experimental in the poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama, and screenplay genres, we strive to showcase a variety of colorful, vibrant works from passionate writers.

FLARE is published by student editors in the Flagler College English Department in St. Augustine, Florida. The publication is printed in the spring, as well as through online editions.

Please limit your longer works (fiction, nonfiction, screenplays, and plays) to one submission; for poetry, limit your submission to five poems. For art, please include no more than five pieces. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but we do not accept previously published pieces.

FLARE conducts blind reviews, so please remove author names from pages of submitted documents.

FLARE receives a high volume of submissions. We try to respond to all submissions within 6 months.

Deadlines:
• Spring Edition: Jan. 15.
• Summer Online Edition: March 31

Payment is in the form of two copies of the issue in which the author is published.

FLARE looks for fiction that showcases evocative storytelling, fresh perspectives and intelligent voices. Typically, we feature literary, traditional fiction, but we welcome experimental fiction for consideration. We generally do not accept genre fiction such as horror, sci-fi or fantasy unless it transcends the genre. Fiction submissions should be 5,000 words or less. Please include a cover letter with your submission. FLARE editors select work through a blind reading process. Please remove names and identifying features from actual manuscripts.
