3Elements Review is constantly looking for material from both emerging and established artists!

Our journal is unique, in that each quarter, we post three "elements" that must be included in your story or poem. We also accept artwork and photography, which only require the use of one out of the three elements for the given quarter, although incorporating all three will definitely impress us. Visit our website as the current elements for the quarter will always be posted.

Stories must not exceed 3,500 words. Poems must stay under two pages.

Submissions are due September 1, December 1, March 1, and June 1, for issues debuting October 1, January 1, April 1, and July 1, respectively.
