Submissions

The FictionWeek Literary Review is now accepting submissions for the Spring 2018 issue.

NOTE: The FictionWeek Literary Review is provided free of charge and is produced entirely by volunteer effort; therefore, at this time, we are unable to pay contributors.

Fiction

We are looking for innovative postmodern fiction. Leading-edge fiction of up to 5000 words will be considered. Selections of up to 5000 words from novels will also be considered. Submissions will be reviewed by the submissions committee, and you will be notified as soon as possible. (Unlike most literary magazines, there is no charge to submit.)

Let us know if your submission is also being considered elsewhere, and be sure to let us know right away if your submission has been accepted for publication elsewhere.

Send your submission, the word count, and a brief bio to:

literaryrevieweditor@fictionweek.com

Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, we can only consider stories that have been pasted into the body of your email (no attachments).

Poetry

We are looking for innovative, leading-edge poetry (no classic or traditional poetry). Please send no more than three poems at a time. Submissions will be reviewed by the submissions committee, and you will be notified as soon as possible. (Unlike most literary magazines, there is no charge to submit.)

Let us know if your submission is also being considered elsewhere, and be sure to let us know right away if your submission has been accepted for publication elsewhere.

Send your submission and a brief bio to:

literaryrevieweditor@fictionweek.com

Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, we can only consider poems that have been pasted into the body of your email (no attachments).

Essays and Book Reviews

We are looking for essays that are at least peripherally related to the art and craft of innovative writing. Book reviews about innovative books of fiction or poetry will also be considered. Submissions will be reviewed by the submissions committee, and you will be notified as soon as possible. (Unlike most literary magazines, there is no charge to submit.)

Let us know if your submission is also being considered elsewhere, and be sure to let us know right away if your submission has been accepted for publication elsewhere.

Send your submission, the word count, and a brief bio to:

literaryrevieweditor@fictionweek.com

Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, we can only consider submissions that have been pasted into the body of your email (no attachments).

NOTE: Although we do ask for author bios as part of each submission, we do not publish them. We believe that once a story or poem is published, it no longer "belongs" to the author but to the reader. Without knowledge of who the author is, the reader has no recourse but to interact only with the story itself.

If you really want readers to know who you are and about your writing resume, you can respond to comments in the Literary Review Discussion Forum here.
