The South Carolina Review reimagines the Southern Literary Magazine. We’re expanding our range to encompass the best of contemporary literature from various perspectives, and we want to reflect the diverse experiences of our readers and writers by publishing affecting, thought-provoking work from both new and established writers from a wide background. Writers receive two contributor copies. Top fiction and poetry submissions as deemed by the editors will receive an award of $250.

SCR publishes fiction and poetry primarily, but will also consider creative nonfiction, scholarly essays, and book reviews. We prefer electronic submissions (in PDF format only), though printed manuscripts may be mailed in accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. No previously published work, work accepted elsewhere, or multiple submissions accepted. Please note that we cannot acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and that we cannot return manuscripts under any conditions.

Our goal has always been to publish the very best poetry and prose we can find in carefully-edited, hand-trimmed & hand-tied chapbooks; to work in close collaboration with authors through the production process; and to present a wide aesthetic range from both established and emerging writers.

Visit our website to read sample work from our authors. We're interested in your work, not your reputation, and have a special fondness for odd ducks. Reading periods are typically six weeks long for each of our open series. Especially interested in new & emerging voices from the widest possible range of experience.

Representative Authors: 

Crystal Boson, Ed Madden, Alyse Knorr, Oliver Baez Bendorf, Christina Pacosz, Guillermo Filice Castro, Allison Blevins, John Keene, Liz Ahl, Robin Reagler, Wayne Johns, Rodney Gomez, Sierra Golden, Marjorie Maddox, Jeff Oaks, Deborah Burnham, RJ Gibson, Mary Meriam, Boyer Rickel, JeFF Stumpo.

As a startup, we began with word of mouth and the reach of new media. Both editors have been teaching at the City University of New York for over a decade, and see our influence inflected by the work of our colleagues at the university—as diverse a constituency as can be imagined—as well as by our students themselves, some of whom have published with us. We are interested in writers from Borges to Lafcadio Hearn to Esmeralda Santiago, Ariel Dorfman to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to you, threading a diaspora of difference.

So far, a majority of writers we've published have been first-time writers, in keeping with our editorial mission.

Please see our complete editorial statement here: http://www.flatbushreview.com/editorial-statement.html. We welcome all arts and approaches, and strive to be as inclusive and diverse in our approaches as the words linked through our namesake avenue in Brooklyn, although we are not limited to that physical landscape. It's a Coney Island of the mind, after all.

See our editorial focus, and look over our online issues at flabushreview.com. We're open to anything, not bounded by the literal geography of Brooklyn but by the conceptual complexity represented by its internal artery, Flatbush Avenue. Each issue has a kind of theme, always loosely and imaginatively interpreted, or ignored altogether (although it might inform our decision-making on a particular issue, and we will always consider all submissions for future issues). The point is to be as searching and challenging, reflective and reaching as possible, connecting worlds, geographies, topographies of the mind, spirit, and body as widely as we can, with that O'Haraean grace to live as variously as possible. We want to open dialogues, not foreclose possibilities.
