Route 2 values well written, creative, intelligent content. Publication decisions are based on quality of the individual piece, and its fit in the overall volume. However, we do welcome pieces that experiment with language and structure.

Send your poetry, nonfiction, fiction, criticism, reviews, and visual submissions to route2@fitchburgstate.edu as .docx or .jpg (minimum 300 dpi) files. Include the genre of the piece in the subject line of the email.

FICTION/NONFICTION pieces should be no longer than 2500 words. Do not send more than three stories at a time.

All forms of POETRY are welcome. We request you submit three to five poems at a time.

CRITICISM and REVIEWS should focus on a close examination of works including literature, art, music, photography, film, television, visual design, painting, and other fields of media expression. Pieces should not extend beyond 2500 words. 

VISUAL ART could use any number of techniques and media, including photographs, paintings, drawings, illustrations, film stills, collages, prints, typography, or animation.
