The Laurel Review is a biannual print magazine seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, script, review, and those that blur the lines between genres. We seek both established and new voices in the writing world, and we are especially interested in writing by those whose identities have been historically under-represented. Submitters living outside of the United States are encouraged to submit. Translations in various genres are also of interest. All accepted contributors will receive two copies of the issue in which they appear.
Ends in 4 days, 21 hours $15.00

All submissions must be received between April 1, 2018 and June 1, 2018. We are looking for a chapbook-length collection of poems, ranging from 25 pages to 35 pages, not including title page, table of contents, etc.

Please include a cover letter with name, physical address, email address, and manuscript title in your submission.

In addition to the publication of the chapbook, the contest winner will be invited to give a reading at Northwest Missouri State University as part of the University’s Visiting Writers Series. Travel expenses, lodging and an honorarium of $250 will be provided.

Last year's co-winners, Arts Grant by Frank Montesonti and rhi(n.)oceros by C.D. DyVanc, are available for purchase below. We encourage all submitters to consider buying a copy of each before submitting to get a feel for our aesthetic. You can purchase both chapbooks here before submitting.

The reading fee entitles you to a one year subscription to The Laurel Review. Subscription will be enacted for the address provided in the Submittable form.

Please use this form to order subscriptions, backorder issues, chapbooks, etc.
