We consider graphic narrative that shows both artistic and literary merit. We prefer work that is character- and story-driven, whether fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. We will consider experimental as well as traditional work in this form, and seek a balance between the quality of the drawings and the words.
We consider graphic narrative submissions for publication both in The Florida Review print magazine and Aquifer: The Florida Review Online. We like to consider them all together so that we can think about which medium would work best for the art and text in each individual comic. If we contact you with an acceptance, we will discuss your preference, and/or you may indicate that in your cover letter.
Please note that you will be given the opportunity to "add on" a
subscription to this submission. You will receive a discounted submitter
rate of $18.00 for a 1-year subscription). Or you might want to
consider this a discount to our subscribers on submissions, meaning that
our submission fee drops to $1.00 for subscribers. It's a damn good deal either way!
