“so much depends/upon//a red wheel/barrow//

glazed with rain/water//beside the white/chickens”

--William Carlos Williams, 1923

From 1976 to 1999 this magazine was known as Bottomfish, a name which referred to neglected,

overlooked writing that had (metaphorically) fallen to the bottom of the sea. We hope that Red

Wheelbarrow also signifies unpretentiousness and the casting of a wide net in search of new, exciting

young writers as well as an ongoing commitment to originality, courage, and craft.

Red Wheelbarrow publishes twice a year. The National Edition publishes literary and artistic works from

all over the country and the world. The Student Edition is open to De Anza and Foothill College students.

We welcome submissions of all kinds, and we seek to publish a diverse range of styles and voices. We

accept student submissions from September to mid-May and publish by the end of Spring quarter.

Poetry: submit up to five poems

Fiction: submit one short story (up to 5,000 words) or up to three short-shorts

Drama: submit one play or screenplay (up to 5,000 words)

Creative Nonfiction: submit one personal essay (up to 5,000 words)

Photographs and Drawings: submit up to five b/w prints or digital files

Comics: submit one b/w strip.

Other: submit one!

Please submit text files in MS Word (.doc) or Rich Text (.rtf) format. Keep your name and contact

information separate from the actual submission. All submissions (including those from Red Wheelbarrow

staff members) are judged anonymously. Judges for Award Contests make their decisions independently.
