Submission Guidelines

The Pioneer Post is the print and online outlet for Delta College students to share their polished fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and media projects with the community and world at large. 

The Post seeks to publish distinct and complete work from writers of all levels of experience. Along with open submissions, the Post may solicit work on a chosen theme. There is no length requirement, but editors reserve the right to request additional revision prior to acceptance.

Open submissions are accepted on a rolling basis: send e-mail to All submissions are automatically considered for online and print publication. Although authors must be enrolled in a class at Delta at the time of submission, publication in the magazine may occur at any time.

If the Post accepts your work, it has first serial print and electronic rights, along with nonexclusive electronic archival rights, to showcase your work indefinitely on the website. At the time of publication, all serial rights revert to the author. If you republish the work elsewhere, please credit the Pioneer Post as the first publisher.
