About The Chaffin Journal

The Chaffin Journal is an annual print journal. We seek diverse and original poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction rooted in literary tradition. We value assured voices, freshness of vision, precision of language, and a sense of urgency in all the work we publish. Simultaneous submissions will be considered, provided you withdraw from consideration any work accepted elsewhere. No previously published work will be considered. We define previously published work as a piece published in another journal (paper or electronic), in a book or chapbook (traditionally or self-published), or one that is currently online in a public blog or within a public forum.

Submissions are accepted annually, October 1-January 15. Responses within 8 months of the end of the submission period.
