At The Chattahoochee Review, each submission receives at least two votes from professionals (not interns or graduate students) who have a wide range of tastes as well as highly-trained and experienced eyes: our Contributing Editors, Faculty Readers, and just about the entire top half of our masthead are our readers. Our active involvement means we are often quite gracious about flaws in a submission when we see potential, and plenty of other eyes are available when two votes conflict or when we want to give a submission another chance. Once accepted, a submission typically receives friendly editorial suggestions and undergoes a revision process before the copy editing stage, which means that many of our contributors are better writers for having published in The Chattahoochee Review. Long after submissions become content, we keep in contact with our contributors and promote their work on a regular basis. We take pride in the life of our submissions because we care most about building a long-term community, not a short-term product. We are writers who care about other writers. If you want to support our mission and become a member of our community, we hope you’ll trust us with your work. Although general submissions are closed in January, our Lamar York Prizes for Fiction and Nonfiction are open. We wish you all the best for your reading, writing, and submitting in 2015!
