Los Angeles Review: Readings for Issue 8 Now Open
Readings for Issue 8 are now open. Readings for poetry will close May 25, 2010. Readings in all other genres will close June 1, 2010. (Please note that readings close at the end of the business day on the date listed above.) Submissions received outside our reading periods will be discarded without notice.

Indicate title in the subject heading. For prose submissions, also indicate word count. Please include a cover letter and bio in the body of the email, and attach your piece as a single .doc or .rtf attachment, not as a .docx.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted if noted in the cover letter. No multiple submissions, please. Response time is 2-3 months.

Writers published in The Los Angeles Review will receive one contributor copy in exchange for first North American serial rights.


Fiction: We’re looking for to hard-to-put-down shorties under 500 words and lengthier shorts up to 4,000 words–lively, vivid, excellent literary fiction.

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.

Translations: Please submit 3-5 translated pieces that open the writer’s original vision to an English-speaking audience; the writing may include poetry, novel excerpts, short stories, essays or interviews. We do not consider work that has been previously published in English translation in the U.S. Please provide a biographical summary of the author and enclose a copy of the original text. Translators must obtain copyright permission for work to be published.
