Fall 2014 Call for Submissions

Dear friends,

Portland Review is now open for submissions. Our submission period for our upcoming Fall 2014 issue spans from Aug. 1st to Sept. 1st. We are looking for well-crafted fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and blends of these to publish in our print issue and on the web. Accepted authors and artists receive one free issue, discounts on additional copies, and our unending gratitude.

As usual, we do not accept unsolicited, previously published work or submissions sent by mail or email. All submissions must be sent through Submittable. General and genre specific guidelines can be found on our Submittable page. Simultaneous submissions are welcome.

This year we also have a three new categories. Flash Nonfiction Feature is similar to our Flash Fiction Feature, but with a focus on brief nonfiction under 700 words. We will also try accepting book reviews written by objective authors to possibly accompany reviews by our editorial staff. Our “Other” category will hopefully draw work that doesn’t fit with a particular genre, blending the lines of our other categories, or working with multi-media forms.

In all of our categories we look for quality pieces with unique visions, regardless if they fit with traditional or estranged forms.

We’re excited to read your submissions!
