We are looking for innovative, luxuriant, insightful human stories—and for things that might surprise us. We like writing that takes risks, affects us deeply, and yet also meets the highest standards of beautiful language and appropriate syntax.
Tips From the Editor
Please read an issue of The Florida Review before you send us your work in order to get a feel for the kind of writing we publish.We do not consider typical genre fiction (sci-fi, romance, action, or fantasy), nor do we publish scholarly essays. Spiritual and political themes and stories of personal loss should be handled with sophistication and a knowledge of contemporary writing in those areas because we don’t publish stereotypical religious odes, political rants, or diary-like entries.
