Spring 2013 Call for Submissions

The submission period for Issue #3, Spring 2013 ends February 28, 2013 (extended from December 2012).

Ishaan Literary Review publishes works of poetry and short fiction.

We publish (roughly) 50% invited authors and 50% blind read/peer reviewed authors twice a year (Winter and Summer). We encourage your to submit a good range of work to give you a better chance of being published with us.

To Submit:

All submissions should be sent to our email address:

Please email your work as a Word document attachment. All works should be included in a SINGLE file with page breaks between individual works and titles for individual works clearly identifiable.

Work with non-standard formatting or non-standard fonts will not be considered.

Poems – 3 to 5 works
Short Fiction – one or two works, adding up to a total of no more than 15 pages, double spaced

Please include a brief (one or two sentence) introduction of yourself in your email (no need for a cover letter). Our reading period can take up to three months (i.e. if you send us work in March, you may not hear from us until May or June).

Other stuff:

Simultaneous submissions are fine and encouraged – we want you to get published, of course. As a courtesy, please let us know if a work has been selected by another journal.
The author retains the rights to all works published. We simply ask for credit as first publisher in any of your future publications (even if altered), including chapbooks, collections, etc. In short, we want to let the world know about you – please do us the same favor when you get the chance.

Finally, we may ask you to recommend poets and writers for future issues. These recommendations are not guaranteed publication, but we hope to build a writing community and expose unknown artists. We all know folks who are terrific but never seem to find the right publication; this is your chance to help a friend out by passing on their name.
We look forward to reading your work.
