Submissions for our print issues:

Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction

We accept original, previously unpublished work for both our print and digital edition.  The ideal piece length will be 3,000-5,000 words. We will accept submissions up to 10,000 words but longer pieces will be judged at a higher standard.

Art and Photography (rolling submissions)

We will accept JPEG, GIF, TIFF or PNG for the cover as well as interior sections.


Submissions for our online content:

Six times a year, Windmill has a specific theme for our online content. Submitted content must fit this theme to be considered. Click here for the complete list of themes and their corresponding reading period.

We accept submissions of fiction and nonfiction. Though we will consider pieces of any length, we prefer submissions in the range of 1500-2500 words. We are not accepting poetry at this time; please see our sister site AMP! for poetry submissions.
