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. Our policy is to write back to every submitter and we have been working through a backlog. We really appreciate your patience as we get caught up.

How soon can I expect to hear about my submission?

We aim to respond to all remaining submissions within the next three months. When we reopen we will respond to all submissions within six months of receipt.

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 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 withdraw any individual poems from consideration, please log into Submittable and add a note to your submission telling us which poems you wish to withdraw. We will see this when we read your submission and will only consider the remaining poem(s).

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.
