We are currently not accepting submissions for poetry, fiction, or nonfiction. We will begin accepting submissions again on APRIL 17th, 2017.
Thank you for your interest in publishing your work with Atticus Review. We are an online journal that publishes stories, poems, essays.
If you’re a writer who tests limits, we want to read your best stuff. We tend to like work that makes us think. We like work that toys with genre boundaries. We like subversive. We like heartfelt. We like lyrical. We like enchanting. We like weird. We like dark humor. We are the island of misfit toys. If you feel like you belong on this island, please send your work our way.
We only consider unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please withdraw your work immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. This is not the place to submit novels or collections. Those guidelines can be found here.
In addition to our role as editors for Atticus Review, we also are writers who submit work into the void. We get intimidated; we fear rejection. So please know that your words will be shown respect, and reviewed with eyes that—like yours—stare at submit buttons for too long before nervous fingers finally click send. We know what a gift it is for you to give us—for free!—something you spent hours honing, tweaking, editing, getting just right. And we thank you.
DISCLAIMER IN FINE PRINT ENLARGED FOR YOUR BENEFIT
Atticus Review is an affiliate of Atticus Books, an independent press based in Madison, N.J. If we offend you in any way, you should seek professional help, or if that doesn’t work, you can sue Atticus Books, a limited liability company that is exceptionally good at imitating a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. You would have better luck sifting money out of a stone.
