The Nassau Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES CAREFULLY, ESPECIALLY HOW TO NAME YOUR SUBMISSION AND NUMBER OF PIECES ACCEPTED! 

Also, take note of our theme.

We welcome submissions of many genres, preferring work that is innovative, captivating, well-crafted, and unique, work that crosses boundaries of genres and tradition. You may be serious. You may be humorous. You may be somewhere in between. We are looking simply for quality. New writers and seasoned writers are both welcome. All work must be in English.

Please visit our guidelines page on our website for more specific guidelines.

Open submission period: September 1 to December 1.

The THEME for our open submission period of 2016-2017 is Accidents Will Happen.

They swarm around us: small and large, personal and public, trivial and severe. The accidents of life are rooted in our everyday living. For this year’s issue, please submit work that investigates the mishaps that happen in your world. Send us your missed opportunities, your mistaken identities, and fortuitous mix-ups. Send us what is botched, broken, and beyond repair. We’ll bring the best of it together, errors and all.

All writing submissions will be under consideration for our Writer Awards.

Include your cover letter in the box for Bio/Cover Letter.  Do not include a cover letter in the file you submit with your work.

**Please do not submit, withdraw, and submit something again.  If you need to withdraw one poem from the batch, make a note in your submission or send us an email instead of withdrawing the whole thing.  If you have submitted in the incorrect category, please send us an email.  Again, please do not submit, withdraw, submit, withdraw, submit, withdraw.  We appreciate it!**
