Georgia Writers Association

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Exit 271: Your Georgia Writers Resource is both a writer's resource magazine and a literary journal. Two times a year, we bring you a motivational kick to get you writing more, publishing more, and living the writer’s life—Georgia style. Plus, with every issue, we showcase short story authors, poets, and artists who call Georgia home. The editors of Exit 271: Your Georgia Writers Resource are volunteers who are writers themselves or who work as freelance editors.

  • Please read our current issue:
  • Writers of feature articles must first send an email query to editors@exit271com
  • All writers and artists must currently live in Georgia. 
  • All work should be previously unpublished. 
  • Artwork should be no more than three to four years old.

YOUR RIGHTS: By submitting your work to Exit 271: Your Georgia Writers Resource, you grant us first serial rights. Since this is a digital publication, we retain the right to archive your work online for an indefinite period. Furthermore, if we publish an anthology, we like the right to republish your work. As appropriate, we may also choose to nominate published work for awards or recognition. You retain all other rights. Once the issue featuring your work has been published, you are free to republish your work as you wish, online and/or in print. Any subsequent publication should note that your work was first published in Exit 271: Your Georgia Writers Resource.
