The Saranac Review is committed to dissolving boundaries of all kinds, seeking to publish a diverse array of emerging and established writers from the United States, Canada and the rest of the world. The journal strives to be a textual clearing in which a space is opened for literary cross-pollination. We aim to publish diverse voices, a literal "cluster of stars," an illumination of the Iroquois roots of our namesake, the word, Saranac.

Our editorial scope is eclectic, and open to all styles, but we are looking for work that is literary, engaging, well crafted and has resonance. We are not interested in genre fiction (e.g. Sci fiction; horror, etc.) or light verse. We suggest that any writer interested in submitting work read a copy of the journal. Buy a digital copy for $4.95 from our website or obtain a sample issue for $5.95. The Saranac Review is an annual so there is a relatively long time between acceptance and publication.

Flash Fiction, Poetry, Mixed-Genre Works, Art/Text and Artwork. Tastes lean toward surreal, experimental, ambivalent, darkly lyrical and wildly imaginative. The magazine was a weekly publication from May 2010 to Feb 2013. Check out our archive on our website.

Read some back issues to get a sense of the magazine's editorial drift. We seek writing that is unconventional, succinct and emotive.

Assisi’s mission is, first and foremost, to publish works of literature and art that are thoughtful, engaging, and well written/composed. We look for work that examines the human condition, that helps the reader view things from a slightly different angle, and that provokes an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world. 

Please make sure that you follow the submission guidelines, especially the requirement for submissions to be blind.
