Long River Review: Now Seeking Submissions

Long River Review is produced by the undergraduate students at the University of Connecticut. They aim to champion emerging writers and unheard voices of all kinds: “Here at Long River Review, we want to publish new voices: voices from the mouth of the river and beyond, voices drowned out by other voices, voices that might not have otherwise been heard.” To get a sense of what they publish, you can read past issues online.

Long River Review was established in 1997. The journal is published annually in print and online, and each edition features writing from around 20 contributors. The journal also features a large amount of artwork, also from around 20 contributors.

Long River Review accepts a wide range of writing: poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, translations, dramas, hybrid pieces, and “any otherwise uncategorized creative works.” Authors submitting English translations should include the original text.

Right now, Long River Review is open to submissions through December 15. Poets may submit up to five poems. Authors of prose (fiction and nonfiction), dramas, and multimedia pieces may submit up to 6,000 words.

Long River Review also accepts all mediums of visual artwork, including photographs, illustrations, prints, paintings, comics, drawings, and mixed media pieces.

Contributors to Long River Review receive two print copies of the journal.

Long River Review accepts submissions online via Submittable, not by email or post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw writing (and artwork) published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.

Long River Review only accepts submissions that follow the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
