Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve already submitted a piece to Granta via the online submissions system. Is it still being considered?
If you have already submitted, your piece is being considered and will receive a response in due course.
How soon can I expect to hear about my submission?
We aim to respond to submissions within six months of receipt, but are sometimes slower in responding. Thanks for your patience.
I’ve contacted Granta to ask about the status of my submission, and have not received a response. How can I check the status of my submission?
You can check the status of your submissions at any time by logging into Submittable. If your status is ‘Received’, it has been received. If your status is ‘In-Progress’, your piece has been assigned to a member of our editorial staff.
I’m having trouble logging in to check the status of my piece.
Please contact Submittable directly if you have any trouble with the database.
I've revised my piece since I have submitted. Can you consider a newer version of a piece rather than the one I submitted?
If you would like us to consider a newer version of an already submitted piece, please log into Submittable, withdraw your piece and submit again as a new submission. Please do not contact us separately asking us to replace a submission. We will not receive this email.
I've sent you three poems. Some of them have been accepted elsewhere, or I want to withdraw some from consideration. How do I go about doing this?
If you want to revise your submission in any way, please log into Submittable, withdraw your piece, and submit again as a new submission. Please do not contact us about altering your submission. We will not receive this email.
My piece has been accepted for a different publication. How do I notify you?
If your piece is accepted elsewhere, please log into Submittable and withdraw your submission from our database.
Can I submit my piece somewhere else even if it’s still ‘In-Progress’ in your system?
Yes. If your piece gets accepted elsewhere, please withdraw your submission by logging into Submittable, clicking on your entry and following the instructions. Please do not write to Granta asking to withdraw the piece. We will not receive this email.
