Sun Star Review is a literary journal publishing prose (fiction, nonfiction, flash, long, or simply unclassifiable), poetry, visual art, and mixed media work. We prefer nuance to flash. We love depth and emotional resonance. We love to read experimental work, and we appreciate risk taking and ambitiousness⎯so long as the ambition is earnest. We love work that blends the real and fantastical. We are also committed to promoting diverse voices and points of view that aren’t well represented in the general literary scene.

Please do submit your best work through our submittable portal. Please do read our mission statement. Please do format submissions to industry standard, and please do follow our submission instructions.

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.

We accept work in all shapes and sizes with an aim to keep track of new, interesting material. We are interested in the cacophony of voices that exist in emerging and established writers alike. These several voices can be disparate, but given the right opportunity—not necessarily a common subject or genre, but a consistent investigation of beauty, form and imagination—they can reach harmony. Jerry strives to provide an opportunity for a wide array of voices to be brought together because of their strength of purpose, conception, and realization.

Please have a look at our past issues to get a sense of what we are looking for. That said, quality and new voices are what we prize over everything else.

Subprimal Poetry Art looks for poetry and flash fiction that is crafted, urgent, compelling, mythical, concerned with spiritual revelation, uses rhythmic sensual, vivid imagery and deals with fundamental truths. We're looking for work that enables the reader / listener to experience something that they might not otherwise in their regular life and causes them to think. We like pieces that use language in new ways. We have a special fondness for prose poems. Voices outside of the status quo keep us awake at night. We create custom musical compositions to complement an author's recording.

It would be helpful to read our archives. We like a diversity of voices, and voices from around the globe.

We are a weekly e-zine with a focus on hybrid work and marginalized writers. Having trouble getting something published? We want to see it. Think prose that makes you want to get up and walk across the country, characters that make you want to shout at the pages in front of you, settings that make you want to run through them.

We are happy to look at submissions that are also under consideration elsewhere, but please wait to hear back before submitting additional work.
