The Tonopah Review welcomes submissions from new and established writers of fiction and poetry. We are especially partial to short fiction, and love anything that crosses genres. For all submissions, please include your full name, phone number, email address, word count, and a bio of 100 words or less. We do not pay for submissions at this time. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the word "submission" in the header. Please include your submissions in the body of the email. Please do not send attachments. We do not accept previously published work, and although we really, really, want to get back to you in a timely manner, please allow up to 60 days for a response. If your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know as soon as possible. We ask for first electronic and archival rights to your work. While we sort of hope it will never happen, we cannot accept responsibility for typos or grammatical mishaps. A word about online literary journals, online publications, eBooks, anything, really, online. One of the perks of publishing in an online journal is that work can changed, corrected or modified, after publication. This flexibility lends itself to all sorts of neat applications, from the ability to continually update an author's biographical statements, to the occasional post publication editing of typos. I am always happy to hear from writers who would like new chapbook announcements or recent publications added to their biography page. If there is a benefit to website publishing, this is certainly it. In addition, we are happy to remove works from the Tonopah Review at the request of the author, should they want to publish the work with another publication. We can even remove the work from our website archives. However, please note that occasionally search engines will cache copies of pages, and those pages will continue to be available through internet searches, even if we have removed the page from our website and broken the link. If, for example, I publish a short story in which my ex husband is a tax evader, and also, say, a clubber of baby seals, and my younger sister has the IQ of a guppy, and then I go on to remarry my ex husband and my sister goes on to win a MacArthur Genius award, I can certainly remove this story from my internet site. However, the internet site might have already been cached by Google, which would make that cached page (again, no longer available on my site) visible to all. In this case, there is simply no way for us to remove these cached pages from online searches.
