Talon Review: Now Seeking Submissions

Talon Review is an online publication based out of the University of North Florida. They are funded by the Amy R. Wainright Endowment. They started out focused only on publishing student work, but since 2018 they have been open to submissions from anyone.  They publish stories, essays, poems, and hybrid work as well as art, and multimedia submissions. Audio files can be performance of poetry, song, or flash. They accept both video essays and cine poems. They have specific submission guidelines that you must follow in order for your work to be considered.

They describe their taste as: “compelled by the strange and beautiful, drawn to the uncanny, fascinated by the fantastical, and relish risky realism that rattles our senses.”. They also make it clear that both: “Traditional and experimental work are welcome.”

You can get a good feel for their previous issue, here. You can view the issue online or download it as a PDF.

They close to submissions on November 5th. You can learn more here and submit here.
