Welcome to Kallisto Gaia Press, home of "The Ocotillo Review". We are a nonprofit literary organization supporting writers at all stages of their careers. Although we welcome experimental or unusual approaches to literature, our goal is to promote finely crafted work with an expressive and meaningful voice. We pay our contributors upon publication because we feel that too much art is taken for granted. The three dollar reading fee helps make this possible. We have an all volunteer staff. Thank you for your understanding.

The Ocotillo Review will publish in the Summer and Winter. General Guidelines:

_All work must be original and unpublished.

_ We only accept submissions through Submittable.

_ Do not put your name or other identifying markings on the body of the text.

_ We prefer Word documents in a 12pt Times New Roman font.

_ See specific guidelines for each genre.

_ We accept simultaneous submissions with the agreement that you will retract it if it is published elsewhere

_All submissions accepted for publication will receive payment (see genre guidelines).
