Colorado Review's only commitment is to the publication of serious poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We do not publish genre fiction nor do we subscribe to a particular literary philosophy or school of poetry or fiction. We are determinedly eclectic and intend to stay that way. Note that we read nonfiction year-round.

Please be familiar with the journal before submitting. Successful writers are prolific readers. The simple cover letter is the best cover letter.

The Apple Valley Review is an online literary journal. It is published twice annually, once in spring and once in fall. Each issue features a collection of poetry, short fiction, and essays. Our goal is to support and promote both emerging and established writers.

We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. Please do not send us strict genre fiction or erotica, work containing explicit language or violence, or work that is scholarly or critical, inspirational, or intended for children. Please note that these are purely editorial preferences. Work that is not a good fit here may be perfect for another market.

We see literature and the arts as part of a broad, ongoing cultural conversation that every society needs to remain vibrant and alive. We look for the honest voice, the idiosyncratic signature, experimental where necessary but not willfully so. Writing that grows from a vision, a perspective, and a passion will interest us, regardless of structure or approach.

New Rivers Press is interested in literary work of every character, but especially in diverse work that's aesthetically challenging and has a social conscience. Our Many Voices Project competition (Sept. 15 - Nov. 1) seeks the best new literary prose and poetry from new and emerging writers. Our Electronic Book Series (July 1 – Sept. 1) seeks manuscripts in popular fiction genres. During open submissions (May), we are interested in reading the best work from writers in all stages of their careers. Founded in New York in 1968, the not-for-profit Press has now published over 330 books.

Make sure to send mss. to the appropriate competition (MVP, Electronic Book Series, American Fiction) and to check deadlines and guidelines. We read general submissions in May and June.

PERSEA BOOKS is an independent, literary publishing house founded in 1975 by Michael Braziller and Karen Braziller, who still own and direct the company. Over the past decades, Persea has produced hundreds of engaging and consequential books. The aim of the press is to publish works that endure by meeting high standards of literary merit and relevance. We have often taken on important books other publishers have overlooked, or have made significant discoveries and rediscoveries, whether of a single work or writer's entire oeuvre.

Submissions queries should include a cover letter, author background and publication history, a synopsis of the proposed work, and a sample chapter. Please indicate if the work is simultaneously submitted. If you would like your manuscript returned to you, please enclose a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage; otherwise, we will recycle it. Because of the high volume of electronic submissions, we do not respond unless interested. At this time, due to our committment to the poets we already publish, we are limited in our ability to add new collections of poetry. For those who qualify, entry in our annual contests, the Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize in Poetry and the Lexi Rudnitsky/Editor's Choice Award, is an alternative means of submitting your poetry to Persea.

Representative Authors: 

Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Paul Celan, Laura Cronk, Nazim Hikmet, Marie Howe, Meg Kearney, Dylan Landis, Earl Lovelace, Randall Mann, Shane McCrae, Pablo Medina, Patrick Rosal, Gary Soto, Sydney Wade, Michael White, Caki Wilkinson
