The Pine Cone Review: Accepting Submissions

The Pine Cone Review is a electronic literary journal founded and run by Susmita Paul, who is the Editor-in-Chief. Candice Louisa Daquin acts as the Poetry and Art Editor and Dr. Khusi Pattanayak is the Prose and Art Editor. They publish four issues a year. Two are themed, and two are not. The most recent themed issue was on Survival, and they’ve yet to announce the final themed issue of 2022. They are currently reading for the unthemed issue, which they refer to as an annual. They close to submission on May 20th.

You can get a feel for what they’ve previously published by reading their back issues here.

Beyond submitting to The Pine Cone Review, there are other opportunities to get involved, including submitting to Winged Seeds, which focuses on  reviews of artistic documents and exhibitions, and Ideate, which publishes opinion and editorial pieces. They are also seeking assistant editors currently, which you can learn more about here.

The Pine Cone Review is currently open to submissions of non-rhyming poetry, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, translations, visual art, and wide range of cross-genre work. All work must be previously unpublished. They do not allow simultaneous submissions.
