Editorial Focus

Colorado Review's only commitment is to the publication of serious poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. It does not publish genre fiction nor do we subscribe to a particular literary philosophy or school of poetry or fiction. It is determinedly eclectic and intends to stay that way. Note that the editors read nonfiction year-round.

Tips From the Editor

Please be familiar with the journal before submitting. We feature examples of each genre from every issue on our website. Successful writers are prolific readers. The simple cover letter is the best cover letter.
