Volney Road Review: Now Seeking Submissions

Volney Road Review is a paying online publisher of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry based in Youngstown, Ohio. They aim to showcase the unpublished treasures of both emerging and established authors. “Send us the work that you think will change the world,” they say. They pay $10 per published piece.

Volney Road Review accepts submissions twice a year: from October 1st through February 1st, and from May 1st through August 1st. They also publish twice a year, on March 1st and September 1st. They’ve been publishing since 2018.

Poets may submit three to five poems, three pages or fewer each. Authors of fiction and creative nonfiction may submit one piece, 3,500 words or fewer. Volney Road Review reads submissions blind, so unpublished authors are welcome to submit.

Submitting authors can expect a response within twenty days after the submission period closes.

Volney Road Review accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
