Rue Scribe ( is the online journal for Underwood Press. 

We concentrate on short fiction and poetry.

• We accept submissions and subsequently read and publish on a rolling basis. When something comes our way that we want to share with the world, we will publish it on our website.

• Suggested length for fiction is under 500 words. But, we will consider longer works. Maximum length for poetry should be considerably less than that but we won’t specify a number. We’ll leave that up to you, the poet.

• We are looking for new material, that is, material never before published. That being said, we will consider reprints for something that fits our mission and that is outstanding in its execution. Let us know when and where it was published before.

• Simultaneous submissions are okay, just let us know immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere

• The author retains copyright of the submitted stories and/or articles. However, by submitting your work to us and our publishing it, Underwood Press LLC acquires the non-exclusive publishing rights to the work for the full term of the copyright. This means, in addition to publishing in our online journal, we may include the piece in our electronic archives. By submitting your work and checking the box below, you are agreeing to this statement. 

• We may make small editorial changes in the work. These will not usually go beyond correcting typos or grammatical errors. For any substantive change, we will contact the author.
