Toad Suck Review is a national/international literary journal published by the Department of Writing in the College of Fine Arts and Communication at the University of Central Arkansas. Its mission is to publish the most cutting-edge works of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, translations and reviews in the Universe.
The 2011 debut of issue #1 (the “transitional issue”) marks the beginning of an annual literary phenomenon. Born from the legendary Exquisite Corpse Annual (whose editor in chief was the iconic Andrei Codrescu), which the Writing Department published from 2008 to 2010, “the Toad” now takes the place of “the Corpse” in an historic evolution that has established UCA as a major player in the literary arts.
Standard Rejection, submission possibly unread
Thank you for submitting your work to Toad Suck Review. Without submissions like yours the magazine could not continue to publish. But we have some awkward news: Issue #2 is already full. We were able to get to our submissions earlier than we expected this year, and we found so much valuable material that we don’t have room for more. What this means, of course, is that we won’t be using your submission for Issue #2. However, please feel free to submit again in the spring when we will begin collecting material for Issue #3.
