  1. Hi, for prose submitters, is it possible to submit multiple pieces as long as the total word count is under 5,000 words? For example, could I submit for review one 3,000 word short story, and two 1,000 word vignettes?
    Thanks, hope the question is helpful to others out there as well.

    • Hi Reid,

      Thanks for the comment! The answer is yes, as long as the total bulk of what you send us is 5,000 words or under, please feel free to send multiple things.

      Hope this helps, let us know if you have any more questions. We look forward to reading your work!

  2. Hello,
    My creative writing professor gave us copies of West 10th along with flyers with the deadline date for submission. The flyer says that the deadline is November 30, but your site says December 14. Which date is correct? I’m still working on which pieces I would like to submit, so I would like to know how much time I have. Thank you!

  3. Are submissions only open to NYU undergrads or alumni as well?

  4. Hello,
    Will I receive an email notification if my work is accepted into 2016-2017’s edition of West 10th? If so, when approximately will I be notified? Thank you!

  5. When will you send out your decisions for the 2016-2017 edition?
