ABOUT THE JOURNAL
Saw Palm's mission is to go beyond the tourist brochures and capture the unique experience of Florida lives, landscapes, and tropes through the work of artists and writers in-state and out.
Established as a web journal in 2006 by John Henry Fleming and the graduate students of the Creative Writing Program at the University of South Florida, Saw Palm began publishing a print edition and taking subscriptions in 2008.
Each yearly issue features both print and web editions with work unique to each. We offer a mix of stories, essays, poems, book reviews, and visual art that speaks to the diversity and uniqueness of Florida. Our contributors include national and international award-winners, as well as emerging artists and writers, many of whom are published for the first time here.
Call for Submissions
We are looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art, and submissions are open from July 1 to October 8.
Update: Our deadline has been extended to October 8. Please submit via Submittable.
