Editorial Focus

Ponder Review seeks stories that challenge, stories that shift their view, ignite their imaginations, spark conversations, and linger with them long after their eyes leave the page. They invite you to explore, expound, and inspire through short plays, fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry,  new media, and visual art.

Tips From the Editor

Required format: Times New Roman 12-point font. All prose should be double-spaced. Poetry should be single-spaced. Drama should follow standard play manuscript formatting. Ponder Review does not accept previously published material nor does it accept multiple submissions per issue. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but contact Ponder Review if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
