At Cherry Tree, we are writers who value and publish well-crafted short stories, poems, and creative nonfiction essays that are not afraid to make us care. We want work that braves to be, that dares to be. We encourage well-informed work where the form understands its relationship with the content. We want pieces that seem wise, that are unafraid to confront topics that matter, and that speak with urgency, that beg for an ear to listen. We want to read vividly-drawn characters who challenge and enlarge our sympathy.

We welcome submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and literary shade between August 1st and October 1st. We only consider original, unpublished work. Click here to learn more about our guidelines.

For accepted work, we purchase First North American serial rights. Payment is $20 per contributor and two contributor’s copies. Submissions are only accepted via Submittable.
