Because of uncertainty and complications due to budget issues for the state of Illinois, Crab Orchard Review is not accepting general submissions at this time. The only available submission opportunity is Crab Orchard Review's Annual Literary Prizes in Poetry, Fiction, and Literary Nonfiction , submitted online from February 21, 2016 through May 17, 2016 deadline extended. We hope to open for free online submissions for mid-May through mid-July for general submissions. Since we have paid for 5,000 submissions for each of these months through Submittable and they will be free to submitters, we are discouraging postal submissions from now on. The decline in postal services make this option a better solution for us going forward and we are glad to be able to provide this means to submit for free to writers who wish to send us unsolicited submissions outside of our contests in mid-May through mid-July. We expect to follow this same approach for our next special issue's non-contest submissions in mid-October through mid-November. These time periods—mid-May through mid-July and mid-October through mid-November—will be the only times to submit unsolicited submissions outside of our contests to Crab Orchard Review.
