Allan Street has gone on the road.

For me Allan Street is no longer a place, it's an idea. The Allan Street Reading Series has housed literature for many months, and now it will do so in a different way.

Please consider this an OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. Allan Street will begin to post your poems, short stories, letters, whinges, and voice recordings.

Slowly this website will be adapted into an online resource as I teach myself html and other things (keyword-slowly). Two podcasts of past Allan Streets are also being edited (slowly). Please consider this an operational hiatus while I attempt to continue curating the Allan Street Reading Series ON THE ROAD.

Please send your poems, stories, letters, or voice recordings of literature to jennerberger[at] Please include a brief email telling Allan Street a bit about yourself. Cv not required, like, at all. Please send your best draft. If you haven't had any work published before though, you should really really still send it. I'll be able to go over it with you and talk about editing. I don't have a ton of time, but we can definitely put something wonderful together if you put in some work beforehand.

Poetry guidelines: 1-4 poems

Fiction guidelines: Anything over in the 2500-3000 word range will be released in installments. 50-2000ish words is a preferred length.

Letters: Letters, especially back and forth correspondence are loved, cherished and encouraged. Especially if they maintain a narrative but they don't gotta.

Voice Recordings: Video or .mp3 files of you reading something are so highly encouraged.

Email me with any questions. Tell your friends. Allan Street can't offer compensation until she gets her act together and applies for some grants, but until then you can definitely put a publication on your resume.
