SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSION: You must let us know If your submission is being sent to another publication simultaneously. And we ask that you please inform us immediately if a work you have asked Lilith to consider has been accepted elsewhere

RESPONDING TO WRITERS: Lilith has a small staff size and a large volume of submissions. Please accept our apologies that, as much as we would like to, we are simply unable to respond to each submission. We usually contact you within six months of submission if we are interested, so if you have not had a response from Lilith within six months after submitting, please feel free to send your work elsewhere.

POETRY: We have selected our poems for 2017-18, and are in the process of notifying authors of their acceptance. You can, however, continue to submit poetry, with the understanding that you may receive no response until Fall 2018.
