Editorial Focus

Chiron Review presents the widest possible range of contemporary creative writing—fiction and non-fiction, traditional and off-beat, in a perfect-bound, softcover format, including art and photography. It has published many well-known writers, but our focus is on up-and-coming new writers. It looks for unpretentious literature that is accessible beyond the ivory towers of academia and outside the bounds of religious or politically correct restrictions. It celebrates eclecticism, diversity, honesty, and humor.

Tips From the Editor

Be familiar with the market and follow submission guidelines. Buy sample copies when budget allows. Please note: We are closed to submissions through late 2023. To celebrate our 40th anniversary, our 2022 issues were "best of" issues with pre-published material. Our 2023 issues will be full length collections by individual poets. We'll return to our regular submissions schedule in late 2023. Please check our website in November 2023 for an update. Thank you.
