The Westchester Review publishes an annual print edition each spring. We now consider unpublished poems, stories, essays, and ten-minute plays by established and emerging writers wherever they reside. We will continue to spotlight Westchester authors in a dedicated folio every issue. Past contributors are welcome to submit again.
Our submission period runs from May 15-November 15, 2019. Before you submit, please make yourself familiar with the work we publish. You can purchase a previous issue directly from us, at an independent bookstore in Westchester, or through Amazon.
FOR GENERAL SUBMISSIONS (POETRY, FICTION, NONFICTION, TEN-MINUTE PLAYS):
Submissions are free. We accept up to five poems or two prose pieces per author per reading period. Please send your poems and prose pieces as a single submission. We do consider simultaneous submissions, but kindly notify us if a piece has been accepted elsewhere.
All prose submissions must be double-spaced and should not exceed 5,000 words. Poetry submissions may be single-spaced.
We will consider only 10-minute plays; longer works will not be read.
Please include a cover letter that lists a word count along with your name, address, phone number, and email address. If you have a connection to Westchester County, please note it in the applicable field in Submittable.
Contributors receive two copies of the issue in which their work appears.
