Many thanks to all our contributors! Headwaters 2017 is no longer taking submissions. We will be reviewing work over the coming weeks and plan to contact authors and artists with accepted selections soon.

Once again, thank you for sharing your work with us. We are looking forward to creating another great journal this year!

NOW TAKING SUBMISSIONS FOR HEADWATERS 2016!

Hello all,

We’re proud to announce that Headwaters Creative Arts is now fully ready to accept submissions to our upcoming Spring 2016 issue! Please submit all work to this JotForm link. We’re accepting fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, short drama, and every form and medium of art that the human cerebrum can process. Whether you’re an established contributor or a total newbie, everyone is invited to submit. If you’ve never been published before, this is the perfect place to start out—and we’re always looking for fresh new voices.

We only ask that you limit your writing submissions to 4,000 words, and we warn you in advance that we can only publish two visual art submissions per contributor (though you’re free to submit as many as you want).

Once again, our JotForm link is here. Send your work our way, and we’ll get right on reviewing it.
