We are currently accepting submissions for Volume 10
The Westchester Review is published annually. We consider previously unpublished poems, stories, and essays by established and emerging writers. As we are a regional publication, all writers must demonstrate some connection to New York’s Westchester County and the surrounding area.
Before you submit, we suggest that you make yourself familiar with the types of work we publish. You can purchase a previous issue through Amazon, at your local Westchester bookstore or directly from us.
FOR GENERAL SUBMISSIONS (PROSE OPEN, POETRY OPEN): We read general submissions year round. We will accept up to five poems or two prose pieces per author per submission period. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but kindly notify us if a piece has been accepted elsewhere. All prose submissions must be double-spaced and not more than 5,000 words. Poetry submissions may be single-spaced.
FOR CONTEST SUBMISSIONS: Please refer to our Contest page for current contests, including specific rules and guidelines. The link to submit your work is below.
FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS: Please include a cover letter that includes word count, your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and your connection to the Westchester County area (there is a field in the electronic submission manager for this).
We greatly prefer electronic submissions. The link for all submission categories is below (we use Submittable). However, if you are submitting hard copies, please mail them with the requisite cover letter and a stamped, self-addressed envelope (for reply purposes only - we don't return manuscripts) to: The Westchester Review, PO Box 246H, Scarsdale, NY 10583.
