We publish 3-6 featured pieces every two weeks--focusing primarily on poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction.

Our digital gallery publishes photo essays, visual poetry, and artists from southwestern Virginia.

On occasion, we invite authors published with Roanoke Review to contribute podcast readings and interviews.

Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Love what you send us. We hope we will, too.

Lines + Stars began as a means of establishing a new creative forum in Washington, D.C., a city that all-too-often coasts solely on its more mechanistic pursuits. While many of our contributors hail from the D.C. area, we've also expanded our writer-base to include national and international voices. L+S Press is our chapbook-publishing arm.

What a Literary Magazine is Supposed to be About: The Writers, Artists and Above All, YOUR Voice!We strongly, passionately believe that instead of being taught what to think, we should be teaching each other how to think, and also be taught how to think. Only then will we discover the capabilities of our own individual cognitive abilities. It’s another step toward shattering the mold. WRITE WHAT YOU WRITE, not what you think we want you to write.

What we WON’T TOLERATE or ACCEPT:-Racism -Misogyny -Vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake (i.e., think: an endless, nonsensical urban dictionary. No, no and no.) -Deeply disturbing ideals and/or fantasies *Important thing to note here: This is not to say in any way, shape or form that we won’t accept something dark, edgy, thought-provoking or writing containing violence or profanities–there’s a line, however. You’ll know when you’ve crossed it. As for concepts or stories about the existence of racism and misogyny, that’s different. I mean that I won’t accept or tolerate literature perpetuating or stating overt racist ideals or sexism.

NMP is a publisher of chapbooks and broadsides. We have a pretty wide aesthetic range, and we acquire manuscripts primarily through our yearly chapbook contest ($1,000 prize, deadline in spring). See the website for more information.

The best way to get a sense of what we publish is to read a couple of our chapbooks.

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.
