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 We now consider unpublished poems, stories, essays, and ten-minute plays by established and emerging writers wherever they reside.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.


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.
