The Nassau Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

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

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 20.

The theme for the submission period of 2013-2014 is The Art of Science.
Biology, geology, chemistry, physics, and so many other realms of reasoning and discovery constantly overlap with the world of art and writing. Please submit works inspired by your interaction with and observation of science. Please do not submit works written for the sole purpose of catharsis, works that are overly-sentimental, or scientific papers or studies. Rather, submit creative works that delve into the scientific mind in some way.

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!**
