Editorial Focus

The Dawn Review publishes poetry, prose, art, and hybrid submissions from emerging and established writers and artists. The editors want to amplify a diverse range of perspectives and showcase work that transcends genre.

Tips From the Editor

We don’t want to simply read the truth; we want to see it refracted into its disparate pieces and molded into what it should have been all along. We want work that shows how solid surfaces are fluid, and in doing so reveals something truly permanent beneath the clamor. We love writing that shows us something new—a new form, a new subject, a new combination of words. We crave voices that carve out a path forward. We read through hundreds of submissions each month, and we want to hear the strongest, most interesting distillation of our contributors’ voices.
