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.

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN TO ALL, although I prefer writing that is either written by composition teachers and writing students OR about teaching and learning. I believe that writing students (virtually everyone has been a writing student) need to have a voice in Teach. Write. However, I do request that in your required third-person bio you include your composition teacher experience, if you have any, or explain the impact writing instruction has had on you.

Do not feel that the subject of your piece needs to be about teaching, although I am not opposed to teaching as a theme. I am open to any quality, polished writing. No gratuitous sex, violence or profanity, please.

We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.

Proofread your work. Have others read your work. Then read it again.

The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.

We prefer writing grounded in fresh language, imagery, and metaphor. We prefer free-verse with sound and rhythm of language. We seek individual voice with good lyric or a strong narrative. For fiction, we like shot pieces that surprise. We reject stereotypical or cliched fiction or poetry, as well as sentimental work that tells rather than shows. See website for submission guidelines.

We will read your submissions promptly and contact you promptly. We prefer submissions e-mailed to i70review@gmail.com.  Please do not send us work you have not carefully revised and revised again. We read hundreds of submissions during the reading period and accept only the very best submitted.

We like experiments and even failures. We relish in the avant-garde. We want to encourage risks and redefine narrative. We are not afraid to publish the cruel, harsh, and ugly. We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don't try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.
