The Nassau Review


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 2018-2019 is Boundaries Built and Broken: This world offers a host of guidelines that are physical, natural, figurative, and imagined. Daily we navigate through social, political, and geographic boundaries. Some of us find loopholes and sneak through. Sometimes we break through either for worse or for better. Send us works that show how boundaries keep order or keep us down.

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!**

The Nassau Review is a print journal.  We do not publish online.
