Lime Hawk

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We're temporarily closing submissions to catch up on our reading. We'll be back soon!


Lime Hawk is a quarterly online journal of environment, culture, and sustainability, featuring new poetry, prose, and visual art each season.

We welcome fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and visual art submissions for the journal year-round.

We want stories that question the conventional, essays that offer new mindsets, and poetry that gives voice to the unheard. We love art that inspires us to evolve from our old ways and embrace the future, the earth, the weird, the whole, the big, the small, the sustainable, the new.

Lime Hawk accepts only original and unpublished work. We are currently a no fee, no pay market. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please let us know as soon as possible if your work is accepted elsewhere. If you need to withdraw a submission, please do so through Submittable. Lime Hawk requires First Serial Rights. Rights automatically revert back to the author upon publication, meaning you can reprint your work wherever and whenever you like. We will respond to your submission as soon as possible, but please allow us 6 months to review your work.
