The Denton Scribe: Open Call for Literary Submissions

We’re proud to announce The Dentonite is now accepting submissions for our new monthly Creative Writing segment, The Denton Scribe. At the end of each month, we will publish one fiction short story, one non-fiction short story, and two poems of any genre. All are welcome and encouraged to send in their work.

This is a chance for The Dentonite to display the wealth of creative writing talent right here in Denton and beyond. No matter where you’re from or what your background or experience in writing may be, we are happy to consider all submitted work. Past publication is by no means a requirement as we look forward to featuring both veteran and new writers alike.

We ask that all pieces be original and unpublished, though we are willing to accept multiple submissions. Short stories must be double-spaced and not exceed 6500 words, while poetry should be a maximum of two pages in printed format. Please submit only one story per monthly period, and no more than four poems.

Please send all submissions via email to In the body of your email you’re welcome to include a small paragraph about yourself if you choose but it is not mandatory. We look forward to reading your work!
