After Happy Hour Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We have received our maximum submissions for the month of May and issue 17 submissions are now closed. We'll reopen for issue 18 on 7/1. 


After Happy Hour is a free online literary journal that comes out twice a year online in fall/winter and summer, with a print contest issue in the spring. We're not limited to any particular genre, and publish poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art. Our headquarters are based in Pittsburgh, but the journal is not exclusive to Pittsburgh-based writers.

Be bold and take risks, make an impact and make it early. Don’t give us characters that mildly care, plots that kind of make the reader turn the page, or language that sort of places us in the heat of the story. AHH favors the audacious. If you want to get a sense of the type of work we publish, you can check out our past online issues free on our website.
