Welcome to Odet

A journal of contemporary storytelling, essays and poetry 

About Odet

A Florida Journal

Odet is a journal dedicated to the written and visual arts, with a focus on fiction, essays, memoir and poetry. Odet is named for early Pinellas County settler and storyteller Odet Philippe, and was created by Safety Harbor Writers & Poets

We seek fiction, poetry, essays/memoirs, and artwork or photos from Floridians that reflect the annual theme. We are looking for submissions that hook us, inspire or surprise us—be creative! 


Submission period for the third volume of Odet is now closed. The theme for this year is "the line."  There are punch lines, crossed lines, lines thrown and lines drawn. Lines are boundaries and borders, things to color outside of and things that keep us inside. Writers, poets, and artists submitted their best work that incorporates this word in a host of contexts. Publication is planned for February, 2019. Details on the launch party will be released soon.

Information and deadlines for the 2020 edition of Odet will be announced in March, 2019. Check out our submission guidelines for more info.

The second volume of Odet was released on February 25, 2018. The theme of this volume was "discovery." Copies can be purchased by following the link below.
