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.
