The Laurel Review is a biannual print magazine seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, review, script, and those that blur the lines between genres. We are open for submissions from the beginning of August to the end of May. 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 but will regretfully only receive a PDF copy and their work posted online as we are unable to ship internationally at this time. Translations in various genres are also of interest. All accepted US contributors will receive two copies of the issue in which they appear.
Please use this form to order subscriptions, backorder issues, chapbooks, etc. If you live outside the United States and would like to make a purchase, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before ordering.
All forms of fiction, both traditional and experimental, are accepted. If you are submitting flash fiction (<1000 words), feel free to submit up to three pieces in a single file.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify us immediately if your piece is taken elsewhere.
Personal essays, travel writing, and other forms of creative nonfiction are accepted. If you are submitting flash nonfiction or micro-essays (anything less than 1000 words), feel free to submit up to three pieces in a single file. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify us immediately if your piece is taken elsewhere.
