Editorial Focus

The Los Angeles Review, an annual print and online literary journal established in 2003, is the voice of Los Angeles, and the voice of the nation.

Tips From the Editor

We seek essay, memoir, and commentary told as compelling, focused, sustained narrative in a distinctive voice, rich with detail. Send 1,000-4,000 words or delight us with flash nonfiction that cat-burgles our expectations. In fiction we’re looking for hard-to-put-down shorties under 500 words and lengthier shorts up to 4000 words—lively, vivid, excellent literary fiction. Or submit 3-5 poems that will surprise us, wow us, and make us wish we’d written them ourselves. We’re open to form, free verse, prose poems, and experimental styles. Our only criterion is quality.
