Rights: Virginia Adversaria purchases one-time rights. Rights revert to the author after publication.

Needs: Virginia Adversaria accepts submissions of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Fiction and poetry are open to any genre, as long as the piece is tasteful (i.e. not sexually graphic or extremely profane). Non-fiction themes vary from anecdotes and true stories related to life in Virginia to any subject of interest to Virginian residents. We feature primarily Virginian authors, but are open to all submissions. Pieces have been accepted from Canada, Hawaii, and North Carolina already. To best understand what we are looking for, it is recommended to read the journal first.

Length: No minimum requirement; maximum is 6000 words.

Art/Photo Needs: Artists may submit slides/photos of artwork for consideration in the Featured Artist column. Artwork used for the cover must obviously have a portrait orientation, but landscape-oriented art can be sent to display merit.

Payment: Authors will be compensated for all material used in Virginia Adversaria. Remuneration will be one cent per word (up to $60) and a contributor’s copy of the magazine in which the piece appears. Payment will be made upon publication.

How to Submit: Manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced with author’s name and page number on each page. Send complete manuscript along with a cover letter and SASE to:

Virginia Adversaria
PO Box 2349
Poquoson VA 23662

E-mail submissions are accepted also at the Empire Publishing address, However, do NOT send manuscripts as attachments. Attachments will be deleted without being opened. Text should be copied into the body of the message followed by ‘The End’ to show that the entire piece came through.

Tips for Writers: Beginning writers have had success sending short vignettes (500-1500 words) for the Reflections column.
