Our mission is to publish great writing and artwork, with a special focus on Central New York. 
We publish twice a year, in the Spring and in the Fall. 
Our name comes from Nine Mile Creek, a 25-mile long waterway formed 14,000 years ago by glaciers in our region.  Like our namesake creek, Nine Mile is varied and surprising,
with different writings and arts coming together to form a cohesive whole.


The magazine is one part of our effort.  We also produce a Talk About Poetry Blog and podcasts on iTunes or at Soundcloud, where several working poets discuss poems and poets that interest, engage, or annoy us.  We also publish a book series, with books available at Small Press Distribution, and on Amazon.  You can find our catalog here.


For poetry: submit 4 – 6 poems in word or text formats. For artwork submit 3-5 small jpg files. Please look at our format before you submit.  We include artist’s bios, pictures, and aesthetic statements to help the reader encountering your work for the first time.  We do not accept essays, reviews, video / motion based art, or Q&A’s without invitation.


Submissions should be done via email to:
