The Nassau Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Closed for 2017-2018! Thanks for your submissions.

Please follow the guidelines carefully, especially regarding how to name your submission and number of pieces allowed for each category.

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 2017-2018 is Blue Collar and The Blues. Send us pieces that investigate work, the dignities and indignities of labor, and the relevant voices that arise from these lives.

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

Include your cover letter and short bio in the box for Bio/Cover Letter only. 

**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 or drop us a note. We appreciate it!**
