The Indian River Review

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 - 9:06am
Indian River State College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.

Saturday, March 31, 2018

We are presently seeking submissions of art, poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction for our seventh issue! We will also consider reviews of non-mainstream books and music. Frankly, if it’s well-written, we want to read it; if it’s visually intriguing, we want to see it.

In the covering e-mail, please include the author or artist’s name, contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address), and a brief (2-4 sentence) bio. Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please notify us if your work has been accepted for publication elsewhere.

Deadline for submissions for Issue 7 is 31 March 2018. (Please feel free to keep sending us wondrous creations beyond that date!)
