Please read an issue of The Florida Review before you send us your work in order to get a feel for the kind of writing we publish.
Our reading period is August through May, although we read subscribers' submissions year-round.
We consider fiction and creative nonfiction of high quality—writing that isn't afraid to take risks (no genre fiction or literary criticism). There is no word or page limit, though we prefer prose that is between 3 and 25 manuscript pages. We consider novel or memoir excerpts only if they stand alone.
Please submit only one short story or essay at a time. However, we will read up to three short-shorts, as long as the total page count remains under 15 pages.
We look for clear, strong poems, filled with real people, emotions and objects. Any style will be considered. Please submit no more than five poems at one time.
We look for graphic narratives that show both artistic and literary merit. Currently, we are able to consider black and white only. Submissions may be sent in manuscript form, or submitted online as jpeg or pdf files.
We do not accept unsolicited book reviews or interviews. If you would like to submit a book review or interview, please send a query to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visual artists are encouraged to submit two-dimensional works in any medium for a color cover or black and white spread within the journal. Submissions may be sent as paper photographs, on a CD-ROM, or via web link, but we will not open any e-mail attachments.
Please send us an email at email@example.com, or send a letter and self-addressed stamped envelope through postal mail.
Submit online here.
