PFN – 3Elements Review Accepting Submissions with the Elements: “Fugitive, Swing Set, Pinecone”

February 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Spring Issue #3 Submission Guidelines

We appreciate good writing in any genre. We especially like edgy writing that offers insight into darkness. We prefer character-driven stories as opposed to plot-driven ones. We relish a piece with a great deal of heart and more than a little bit of Truth (note the capital “T”). We want to read a story that makes us feel edified or philosophical or amused or creeped out or angry or melancholy or inspired or, best yet, all of these things together.

Using the elements

3Elements Literary Review  is a themed literary journal, and all THREE elements (the specific words, Fugitive, Swing Set, Pinecone) given for the submission period must be included in your story or poem for your work to be considered for publication. NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER.

Your story or poem doesn’t have to be about the three elements or even revolve around them; simply use your imagination to create whatever you want. You can use any form of the words/elements for the given submission period. For example, if the elements are: Flash, Whimsy, and Seizure; we would accept the usage of Flashed, Whimsical, and Seizures.

How to submit your work

We will only accept previously unpublished (including digital/online content) work submitted to us through Submittable. You can easily submit material to us from our Submit page. Any work that is sent to us as an attachment, or in the body of an email, through our ‘Contact’ page, or any other way outside of Submittable will automatically be declined.


There is no minimum word count, but please keep your fiction and nonfiction submissions under 3,500 words. Poetry must be under two typed pages.
