  2. All work must be previously unpublished.  Works posted publicly on the internet, including those posted on Facebook, may not be eligible for publication in Underground.  If you have questions regarding the eligibility of a certain piece you would like to submit, please ask us before you submit.
  3. Simultaneous submissions will be considered with notification. It is the responsibility of the author/artist to notify us as soon as a simultaneous submission has been accepted elsewhere.  Underground retains first publication rights for submissions accepted by and published in the journal.

  6. If you are submitting work in more than one category, you must upload each work into a form that corresponds with that category.  For instance, please do not upload poetry into an art submission form.
