Submissions deadline: open

The Los Angeles Review, an annual print and online literary journal established in 2003, is the voice of Los Angeles, and the voice of the nation. With its multitude of cultures, Los Angeles roils at the center of the cauldron of divergent literature emerging from the West Coast. Perhaps from this place something can emerge that speaks to the writer or singer or dancer or wild person in all of us, something disturbing, something alive, something of the possibility of what it could be to be human in the 21st century. We invite both published and emerging writers to submit their work to our editors, and we thank you for being part of the Los Angeles Review.

The Los Angeles Review is open for submissions year-round. All submissions will be considered for LAR Online and for the new best-of print edition to be released yearly in the Spring.

We encourage submitters to familiarize themselves with our journal before sending work. You can read more here.

Submissions guidelines

Poetry

Please submit 3-5 poems that will surprise us, wow us, and make us wish we’d written them ourselves. We are open to form, free verse, prose poems, and experimental styles. Our only criterion is quality. Please send all poems in a single document; do not submit or attach each poem separately.

All submissions will be considered for the online edition of LAR, and for the best-of print issue set to be released every Spring.

Direct correspondence to poetry@losangelesreview.org

If a poem is accepted elsewhere, please add a note to that effect in your submission. Do not withdraw the entire submission if want us to consider the remaining poems.

Fiction

We’re looking for hard-to-put-down short fiction under 1,000 words as well as sequences of such shorts and/or stand-alone lengthier stories up to 4,000 words–and regardless of length, we always hope to see lively, vivid, excellent literary fiction.

All submissions will be considered for the online edition of LAR, and for the best-of print issue set to be released every Spring.

Direct correspondence to fiction@losangelesreview.org

Non-Fiction

Please submit an essay, memoir, or commentary told as compelling, focused, sustained narrative in a distinctive voice, rich with detail. Send 1,000-4,000 words or delight us with flash nonfiction that cat-burgles our expectations.

All submissions will be considered for the online edition of LAR, and for the best-of print issue set to be released every Spring.
