The Southeast Review Now Accepts Online Submissions

02 April 2010
The Southeast Review Now Accepts Online Submissions
The Southeast Review is now accepting regular submissions for publication consideration exclusively through online Submission Manager.

General Guidelines

In each biannual issue, SER publishes the finest poetry, literary fiction, creative nonfiction, book reviews, interviews, and art. We aim to present emerging writers on the same stage as established authors—we seek quality work for our quality publication. The best way to determine what we’re looking for is to read what we’ve been publishing. Click here to order a single issue, or better yet become a subscriber and join our reading family. General submission guidelines follow. Please see below for genre specific directives.

SER accepts submissions year-round, though please be advised that the response time is slower during the summer months. During the academic year, we try to respond within 2-4 months. If, after four months, you have not heard back regarding your submission, you may query the appropriate section editor.


Please submit no more than 5 single-spaced poems at a time (with a maximum of 15 pages total per submission). Save all poems in one document before submitting. If any poem (one or multiple) included as part of your submission file is selected for publication elsewhere, please withdraw the submission through our online Submission Manager. Simply delete the unavailable poems, and resubmit the rest.


Please submit one double-spaced story of up to 7500 words. We rarely publish short shorts not submitted through our World’s Best Short Short Story Contest; however, should you choose to submit flash fiction, please send no more than 5 short shorts per submission. SER does not publish novellas or novel excerpts.
