Editorial Focus

Harvard Review is a major literary journal that publishes short fiction, poetry, essays, and book reviews. Writers at all stages of their careers are invited to apply; however, the magazine can only publish a very small fraction of the material the editors receive. We read poetry submissions during the month of August and fiction and essay submissions are read on a rolling basis throughout the year (see social media accounts for periodic updates).

Tips From the Editor

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with Harvard Review before you submit your work.
