Because a nation deserves to hear her veterans’ stories

Line of Advance is currently accepting submissions of creative writing for publication in several of our upcoming issues. If you’re on the fence, we encourage you to submit your work as an opportunity to receive feedback from a committee of professional writers and editors who are sensitive to the experiences of veterans.

* We are also accepting small quantities of photography for publication as well. Please email us for details.

Submission Guidelines

Type of Work

Line of Advance publishes creative writing in any format, including (but not limited to) short stories, flash fiction and poetry. We also publish, in limited quantities, original photography and other forms of visual art. All submitted work is subject to the approval and review of our editorial committee.


Line of Advance publishes the creative writing of U.S. military veterans and soldiers. While we will, on a case-by-case basis publish work under a pseudonym, we do require proof of military service prior to publication. Any writers approved for publication will be contacted individually via email for copies of their DD214 or military identification card.


As a non-profit literary journal, Line of Advance does not currently pay for published works. Work that has been published in any edition of Line of Advance will be entered in an annual awards review, for which financial awards and other prizes may be awarded.
