Submit Your Work

Please feel free to submit any work you think would belong here. We always conduct a close reading of any submission and review its qualities before considering it for publication, and will give feedback if your work is turned down. Poems and short stories can be of any length or number, any genre, any style. There are no limits, but please keep in mind that we stand for eclecticism, art for art’s sake, and beauty, the irrepressible instinct of writers to be bold and beautiful. We will almost certainly reject satire, comedic pastiche, and work of an overtly political nature. Read more about our ethos here.

We accept submissions in .doc, .docx, and .pdf formats. Please include your name and contact details at the top of the document.

We prefer prose submissions, particularly essays, to be double-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman, and with a wide left-hand margin.

To submit your work, please email:

editors@thecompositereview.com

Please format the subject line as Submission: [type], for example: Submission: Poetry or Submission: Short Stories

We look forward to hearing your story.

Sincerely,

The Editors.
