Submissions will close temporarily on September 21, 2015 so we can catch up and respond to all the authors who’ve been kind enough to send us their stories. Submissions will re-open this winter. Please check back here and on social media for the exact date. Thank you for your patience!

We look forward to considering your work for publication by The Austin Review. We accept all submissions electronically through our Submittable account: The Austin Review Submittable Page.

We publish stories in a print journal and in our online journal called Spotlight. For our print journal, we accept short stories, flash nonfiction (500 words or fewer), and critical analysis. For Spotlight, we accept short stories, flash fiction, and flash nonfiction. Please submit stories for the journal and for Spotlight to our Journal category in Submittable.

The best way to know what we're looking for is to read our journal; to make that easier, one piece from each issue will be available for free through the website under our Store tab. Our $3 submission fee is used to compensate our journal contributors (details regarding compensation are provided upon acceptance). 

Please send all book reviews, interviews, and literary news to our Blog category. There is no submission fee for this category.

Thank you for your interest in The Austin Review.
