Entries are now closed for the first annual Kraken Awards in Fiction and Poetry. We are very excited about being able to finally start reading the entries. With that in mind, we will be closing regular submissions from May 8th through May 31st. In addition to the contest entries, we have seen a surge in regular submissions. We are further behind in our reading than we would like, and soon Katie and Sarah will also be grading finals for their students. So we’ve made the difficult decision to give ourselves some breathing room.

Seriously? This is the best possible problem we never thought we’d have. We have come a long way in four years. Many thanks to everyone who has submitted or is planning on submitting work to Devilfish Review. That you trust us with your stories and poetry means the world to us. We look forward to doing this for years to come.
