Should I leave my name off the submission?

That's up to you. It doesn't make any difference to us.

How long does it take to hear back from a regular submission?

We try to keep the response time under one month.

Where do you post contest winners?

You'll be notified one way or another via email; make sure Submittable is on your safe list. Winners and finalists are announced at lascauxreview.com/contest-results and elsewhere.

How long does it take?

That's a little trickier. Since all readers are volunteers, the job gets done when it gets done. Our goal is to wrap things up within three months of the closing date of a contest.

Any advice?

When submitting multiple poems or flash pieces, always present your best stuff first.

Please visit the Submissions Page for guidelines. This category is for stories, poems (submit up to five, in a single document), and creative nonfiction intended for the online journal (not for a contest). Payment is $100. If you have any problems submitting write to Steve at lascauxreview at gmail dot com.

Ends on March 31, 2018$10.00
