Welcome

Tributary Reader is a print journal of arts, literature, and environment in Richland County, Ohio. Volume 1 was released in Summer 2021 and features the works of an array of poets, writers, painters, illustrators, photographers, and thinkers with a strong connection to Richland County.

We are now accepting submissions for Volume 2, Winter 2021. Works of poetry, fiction, narrative nonfiction, criticism, interviews, illustration, photography, design, and other paper-and-ink-friendly pieces are all invited to submit. We are especially hoping to beef up our environmental offerings this time around–so please help spread the word! The more perspectives included, the richer the picture of our shared place on Earth. We will set a tone of dignity and respect for all people within the pages, and will investigate the literary life, art, and nature that exists here now. The deadline for Winter 2021 is October 15.

We are approaching this goal with a very open and DIY spirit, and we invite anyone who is interested to submit a piece for consideration. Please see complete submission details in the “submit” section. We look forward to getting to know your work!
