TMR Call for Submissions

By John Darcy

Designed by John Darcy.

Well, it is that time of year again. We want YOU to submit to the minnesota review.

You know that poem that’s sitting on the desktop of your computer? That story you’ve been perfecting for more hours than you’d care to admit? That’s the one for us. We want that voice only you can conjure to grab us by the insides and sparkle our souls clean. We want to publish that first line of yours, that hook, that character, something that’ll blow us to the moon and back. We want your submissions.

Put a more formal way, the minnesota review, housed at Virginia Tech and staffed by our graduate students, is now reading unpublished poetry and fiction from new and established writers—send us your best work!

We are particularly interested in receiving poems and stories from writers traditionally underrepresented in publishing.

Submission guidelines: Send one piece of short fiction (up to 5,000 words), a packet of flash fiction, or 3-5 poems via Submittable (accessible here). Our reading deadline is November 1, 2019. 

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but we ask that you inform us immediately if a piece has been accepted elsewhere. We don’t charge a submission fee, and payment is two contributor’s copies of the journal (sent upon publication).

Our editorial staff is composed of writers who are fat, queer, trans/non-binary, Latinx, disabled, rural, Appalachian, poor, Black, veterans, and immigrants, and we look forward to reading your work!

  1. Hello. I submitted poems to TMR through Submittable on August 9 and must withdraw one that has been accepted elsewhere. Your Submittable “messages” tab does not allow writers to send updates. Please advise. Thanks for your help. Joe
